CODAR update: Updated and new KMZs.


While the CODAR sites in Galicia are being fixed, the CODAR group has continued working on MARCOOS kmzs. This past week, we added boxes that contain the current time of the MARCOOS Totals. Clicking on any of the arrows will cause a balloon to pop-up with the date and time of the current totals. Next up for the MARCOOS kmz is adding a contour plot so that we can easily distinguish the speed of the surface currents by color.

Here is a screen shot taken at 1:10 am on 11/24/09.


As you can see the vector totals are for 11/24/09 0100 hrs, indicating that the script is working correctly.

Also, we began working on imputing CODAR site radials into Google Earth. These scratch plots will allow our technicians to quickly and easily view radials by clicking on the placemarks of all of our sites. With these plots, CODAR site performance can be easily monitored in near real-time without the need for manual plotting.

All of the working KMZs can be found at . The others will soon follow.
