radar_tools demo

The module radar_tools allows to access radar mosaics in various formats and process the data in different ways. Data from different sources is obtained transparently and various interpolation and filtering options are provided.

The radar mosaics are accessed via two functions:

  • get_instantaneous for instantaneous reflectivity or precipitation rates

  • get_accumulations for precipitation accumulations

These two functions are very similar, get_accumulations itself calling get_instantaeous repeatedly in order to construct accumulations on the fly.

This tutorial demonstrates the different operations that can be performed.

This tutorial demonstrates how to process batches of observations and perform nowcasting-based time interpolation.
