Info on getting fronts plotting fixed

Post by Wally »

I was going to see if anyone else had a plotting of fronts problem. But, before I did, Tim already gave a nice quick fix. Be sure to check
http://www.weathergraphics.com/da/frontfix/
for info.

Just be sure to replace URL in auto running scripts as well.

Thanks, Tim.

Don't know how long this URL will be around but hi-res fronts can also be found at http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/raw/as/a ... od.sus.txt

Good finds, guys.

NOAA has indicated that more and more they will be going to https - for general net security purposes. We'll see how long these last.

Re: Info on getting fronts plotting fixed

As mentioned on the front page back in July, we have been mirroring the data here:

http://www.weathergraphics.com/data/

We are going to be bringing more and more core data onto our server so we can get control of problems caused by URLs and products changing randomly. Digital Atmosphere of course allows you to edit the tables and work around these issues, but we will be working toward a more long term solution so users aren't at the whims of sysadmins changing things just for the sake of change.

The NOAA site for fonts
http://tgftp.nws.noaa.gov/data/raw/as/a ... od.sus.txt

has gone https - so I'm glad Tim already set up his link to get the data.
