WxAzygy® Tools

by WxAnalyst

Radar Beam Occultation

Self-contained global DEM

Portable - works without internet

WxAnalyst has been working on a commercial capability to calculate weather radar occultation patterns (Shipley et al., 2009) within a Virtual Globe environment such as Google Earth. The interactive nature of Google Earth is used to identify locations for radar equipment, place that equipment at a user defined location and then immediately acquire a depiction of occultation by terrain. WxAnalyst has used this capability internationally with Innovative Hydrology to design a weather radar networks, and with Baron Weather Services to define the optimal weather radar placement. A sample screen shot of these tools for a radar siting activity in Morocco in shown below. The achievements in this area have resulted in a set of utilities dubbed the WxAzygy® Tools. Customer needs for portable capability and operations without internet have resulted in a transportable version of WxAzygy® Tools, which is deployed on an external USB drive. A version of the WxAzygy® Tools for NASA World Wind is in development.
