NOAA AXBT and radar data does not yet appear in our live system. (AXBT data will likely appear by the end of September.) Please use the live mirrors above to view data. For AXBT data, you can then decode the raw text data in our manual recon decoder.
Simple Google Maps mapping is not yet available in this new system. Only Google Earth mapping data is currently created. Additionally, older HDOB decoders have not yet been re-written and have an ugly looking output. The vortex decoder has also yet to be completely re-written, so these features will become less stable as they are rewritten. Older Google Earth recon mapping will eventually be added, although mapping prior to 2007 will not appear for awhile as the older HDOB decoders that process data specifically for Google Earth have yet to be re-written.
