Additional Raw NOAA Recon Data: Radar


NOAA radar data does not yet appear in our live system. Use the live mirror above. NOAA AXBT data is now processed by our system in real time. The temporary archive that had stored older data has been removed as the older data has now been added to our new system.

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.
