A Case Study on Multiresolution Visualization of Local Rainfall from Weather Radar Measurements
Weather radars can measure the backscatter from rain drops in the atmosphere. A complete radar scan provides three–dimensional precipitation information. For the understanding of the underlying atmospheric processes interactive visualization of these data sets is necessary. This is a challenging task due to the size, structure and required context of the data. In this case study, a multiresolution approach for real–time simultaneous visualization of radar measurements together with the corresponding terrain data is illustrated.
