Status: Hal Herring provided me a soft copy of
the source code through Mr. Richard Kulow. I will forward to SPO, LMMS,
and FSL on 22 July.
Is Flash Data required from
Provide LPLWS display color
and LCC timer
Johnny Weems is capturing the ASCII data from MIDDS as well as the LPLWS
displays and LCC timer. I will forward to SPO, LMMS, and FSL, target date
26 July. Plan to provide response to flash data with LDAR questions, see
# 7 below.
Status: Per coordination
with Mr. Roeder, a display is required. A sample display from MIDDS will
be provided, data captured from MIDDS, plan to provide 22 July.
Status: Data is captured
from MIDDS, plan to provide 22 July.
Status: Data is captured
from MIDDS, plan to provide 22 July.
Status: Plan to provide
- Area Coverage (distance across map)
- Grid size w/in data block--resolution of data (Bins)
- Temporal Resolution
- Binned and Displayed--time amounts
- CGLSS on LDAR display
Flash new strike for how long??
Color fade out--gets dimmer
- Histogram colors match LDAR charge data point colors
Better time resolution?
Status: Will coordinate in-house to answer these questions. Target date: August 2.
Treat as a vertical data set
Time versus height display (same type of display as profilers)
Put all tall towers into perspective (300 - 500 feet)
Include tall towers into the 30 - 60 perspective
Any tower can be displayed at any level
Can loop and auto update in "procedure" (i.e., latest radar and satellite images)
Can load multiple models
Can draw synoptic features on each model
Each can be saved discretely, mod required so only saves current prog chart versus current and all previous
Tall Towers (313):
Have wind barb only display
Create design files to allow user configurable plots
Include pull-right menus of Tower Plots for each height.
Create profile (time series) presentation
Merge 915 with 50 mHz in LAPS analysis
Create a "Complete Profiler" which has mini-sodar, 915 and 50 mHz
Range Rings Tool:
Remove ID from radius labels
Add #37 launch pad - get info from Johnny
Make "Point Menu" in moveable section open when you open "New At"
Do not allow multiple occurences of this tool to run when you change scale.
Get configurable fields (and thresholds) to put in meteogram groupings
Label vertical axis with units and product label
Be able to set day and night thresholds - possibly with a script or tool
Need delta-T for Time Series - overlay 24 hour changes
Need wind direction as a variable
Make blue or grey backgrounds for CCTV
Make sample output away from plotted data - don't cover data up.
If data are missing, set up a design file not to put out a table in sampling.
Verify labels for observation sites and locations.
Make inset maps larger and able to toggle off
Add global line width control to D2D Toolbar.
Need to see both sensors - especially for maintenence people.
Configure window manager to rid of blue space on left side.
Verify that same color tables and map backgrounds as D2D are used.
Slides need spacing between text lines.
Need to be able to annotate animated data (be able to draw and analyze each frame)
and svae in a Slide Show.
Be able to capture whole model suite in a Procedure, but have one prog per bundle.
Load multiple models in sequence.
Need graphics from Johnny
Need to display peak power from RSA profilers(in VBrowser) to see mixing layer
"DevDeg" is standard deviation of wind divergence and is an observed value for low level turbulence
Anvil Tool (AMU developed) - need GUI to enter which balloon; possibly use DGM files
Drawing Light paths (approach paths, trajectories) on AWIPS - create GUI utility to create maps or ingest maps from
RSA Users Manual URL to ER folks; send tar file of UM to ER for their server
Shadow LWO's and forecasters during routine and pre-launch scenarios, daily wx briefings, and NASA briefings (soon) to
learn about operations and to plan for user training.
Set up systematic evaluation collection (online surveys, etc)
Put UM on Help button
Make 4 panels larger.
To denote age, use 5 different colors, one for each minute - red, green, blue, yellow, cyan were recommended by ER.
Allow user to toggle between 4 panel and just 3D panel.
When slicing through the data, highlight the data with contours.
Data should auto-update and be able to do continuous looping.
Design a realtime histogram (time v. step leader count). They really depend on this display.
Make histogram age off to the right.
Use 1-minute time bins. (ER will verify this if they want shorter.)
Extend histogram to 5 minutes in length.
Use above colors to match minute by minute age of data.
Build in a scrollbar to view past 30 minutes of data.
CGLSS (LLP) data: (These data display ground stroke polarity)
These data will be on D2D also:
Merge CGLSS with LDAR on 3D display.
Show as large + and - that blink in red for the first minute and then fade off on plan view.
Retain CGLSS on othr panels for 5 minutes.
Create a histogram of time v. % of polarity in 5minute bins. (ER folks will confirm this idea before we design anything.)
Indicate start/end times on GUI and on 3D panel only.
Remove raw data counts.
Overflow Bins: There are times when the electrical charging of clouds is occurring just off the display, especially when they
are zoomed in. On current system, user can see these "fringe" data in an outside border. This needs to be replicated at least in
the plan view panel.
Allow zooming over a selected center point.
Indicate distances and static range rings. Use "Rainbow Rings" from D2D.
Allow infinite zoom control rather than discrete distances.
Include a Lost Data (red/green - possibly blinking) Indicator that communicates with the data server. Will need MarySue's
help with this. If in replay mode, make clock on GUI panel different color or change above indicator blue or yellow.
Need ability to create flight paths because they change often.
Make fixed at 50,000 feet AGL.
Make 250 nautical mile radius around Cape centroid.
DRT or Playback:
Need for demos and training
Put DRT and realttime buttons on GUI
Red and green are not great colors for CCTV; need to test these out.
