Nighttime ProxyVisible Imagery in the National Hurricane Center (NHC) AWIPS2
Galina Chirokova attended several AWIPS2 cloud sessions with ISATSS developers group and NHC’s forecasters and Technology and Science Branch (TSB) staff to evaluate the display of ProxyVisible Imagery in NHC’s AWIPS2. NHC has been running ProxyVisible imagery on local AWIPS2 since 2020. The updated version of the algorithm has been implemented in ISATSS and AWIPS2 in the beginning of 2021. The use of the cloud instance of AWIPS2, setup by the ISATSS group, allowed developers from the ISATSS group and CIRA, and NHC forecasters and developers to view the same instance of AWIPS2 and confirm that the updated ProxyVisible imagery is being displayed correctly.
