Virtual Globe Radar Project

Interactive Index for Google Earth:

WxAnalyst's NEXRAD Index

Terrain, vegetation and manmade structures can block or significantly reduce radar coverage. WxAnalyst's advances include efficient high spatial resolution, manmade structures, Virtual Globe visualization, and Anomalous Propagation.

Low resolution 3D radar occultation samples are published here for Google Earth. The data on these page are freely available for your personal use - commerical use subject to licensing and other restrictions.
