One thing that I'd like the software to include is a "Pathcast" feature where someone could click on a storm and have it estimate when a storm is going to hit.
Are you referring to wedge-shaped storm tracks or to a table of city names showing arrival times?
The second option, Mike, is what I'm curious about for a future version of the software
Also, I love that your software saves 8 minutes of time here. StornLab is constantly 10 minutes or more behind and that's potentially deadly for people relying on that product.
I don't understand how StormLab could be so far behind when acquiring data. Have you run the two apps side-by-side to see when the updates occur? Have you set your computer's time to the NIST atomic clock? Level3 internally synchronizes to the atomic clock so it doesn't matter if your computer clock is synced or not. If StormLab really is that far behind, you should report it as a bug.
The Stornlab folks get their radar source from a different source than you guys...It's not a bug in the program.
My only "gripe" M-25 in Michigan, at Unionville, MI doescn't gracefully curve to the N, it's is a 90 degree turn
I use the NWS road shapefiles to generate my base files. Maybe they smoothed out the corner when generating their base maps???
Dunno, to be honest with you.. It's not that big of a deal to me, just something to point out. I sort of realized that the source shapefiles were off. Where can I locate the NWS shapefiles, though???
