Interactive Processing System (AWIPS):
The AWIPS Workstation
The Advanced Weather Interactive Processing System (AWIPS) uses Linux-based workstations to display the radar image products and alphanumeric data. The primary application used for radar data display and analysis is the Common AWIPS Visualization Environment (CAVE). CAVE can display:
- All of the products on the Product Generation Table,
- Products requested through the One-Time Request (OTR) and Radar Multiple Request (RMR) processes, and
- Alerts from the dedicated Radar Product Generators (RPGs).
The power of the AWIPS workstation is its ability to display radar and all other meteorological data on a common map background.
More details on displaying WSR-88D base data and products on the AWIPS workstation were discussed in DLOC Topic 1. Please feel free to review that information, including any Weather Event Simulator (WES) exercises, as you proceed through the Distance Learning Operations Course (DLOC) to enhance your understanding and expertise with CAVE.
