4.3.0 Loading WSR-88D Level II Radar Data

Level II data is accessed in the IDV from files on your local disk, each file having data from one WSR-88D radar for all sweeps (tilt) for one time.

For the exercises in this section, we will use Level II data corresponding to the same times as the Level III data we used from the Bow Echo Case study in in the workshop dataset. See Installing local datasets for more information if you need to install these data.

  1. Setup for Level II displays
  2. Open the Level II Data Source Chooser
The data source Level II Radar (TLX) appears in the Data Sources list in the Field Selector.

Lets look at some of the properties of this dataset.

  • Open the Data Source Properties editor for Level II Radar Data (DVN). Show popup
    Level II data has three Fields (radar data moments or data types). The IDV has several display types for Level II data. Any of the moments can be shown with any of the displays. For the following exercises, we will use Reflectivity.
