New features for BoM radars added 27 Feb 2008
« on: 27 February 2008, 11:35:27 AM »
Just found this on the Bureau website, something to look forward to tomorrow.

 The enhanced radar viewer has been developed as part of the  Radar Network and Doppler Services Upgrade Project (RNDSUP) and is available for all radars in the Bureau's network. The enhanced radar viewer allows you to customise the radar map so that you can display features that will help you in locating rainfall in relation to your city or town, or in relation to other locations or areas that you are interested in.

New features will be available in the radar viewer from February 27, 2008. These include:

National radar mosaic (with satellite image overlay)
Accumulated rainfall for the Melbourne radar
Navigation to nearby radars
Rainfall since 9 am included on the observations map layer
Automatic radar animation (loops) enabled on first entry

A menu of convenient links is located above the radar map to provide easy access to:

Animated radar image loops
Single radar images
128 km and 256 km views for all radars
National radar mosaic (with satellite image overlay)
64 km views for Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Yarrawonga radars
Accumulated rainfall for Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne radars
Doppler wind images for Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Yarrawonga radars
Information about the radar site
Links to other radar locations
Help notes and background information about the radar images
