Weather Lab - 3D
- App Store Info
DescriptionDownload for a 1-month free trial. The first 3D radar on iPhone® and iPad®, Weather Lab is for meteorologists, storm chasers, atmospheric scientists, pilots or weather enthusiasts that want more than just a friendly forecasting app and are looking to get the most out of weather radar data. We serve the most up to date data directly from NOAA to provide the most up to date information possible.
WHAT'S IN THE BOX
There are two levels of Weather Lab:
Weather Lab: Gives you the richness, power, and fluid control you demand to help you gain an advanced model of weather events across the country.
• Reflectivity and the radar views of scan (lowest scan) and volume
• National Weather Service (NWS) alerts
• True 3d weather radar views
Weather Lab PRO (In-app Subscription): Everything from Weather Lab, plus:
• Up to 15 scans per volume
• Horizontal and Vertical volume slicing
• Velocity, Differential Reflectivity, Correlation Coefficient, and Spectrum Width

THE POWER OF 3D
The ability to view radar in 3D helps create a better mental model and improves situational awareness. Interacting with a more natural and fluid 3D environment assists you with the analysis of this complex visual information. To make this possible, we built it using Apple's high-performance Metal graphics layer.
Gain deeper insights by displaying and cutting through radar volumes in different ways:
Scan - Display radar in the form in which it was captured: A full circle scan pointing into the sky at a constant elevation angle. [Weather Lab: Lowest scan. Weather Lab PRO: Any scan in the current VCP.]
Volume - View the radar as four combined 3D isosurfaces, giving you the at-a-glance ability to understand the big picture.
Horizontal Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Since any given scan ascends through the altitudes at an angle, a mental leap is required to understand what is happening at a single altitude. Now you have the ability to see a specific altitude.
Vertical Slice (Weather Lab PRO) - Cut through the radar volume vertically, creating a "wall" of data to allow instant interpretation of what is happening through all altitudes at once.
Level 2 NEXRAD Radar:
• Velocity (Weather Lab PRO)
• Differential Reflectivity (Weather Lab PRO)
• Correlation Coefficient (Weather Lab PRO)
• Spectrum Width (Weather Lab PRO)
• Severe Thunderstorm
• Flash Flood
• Special Marine
Contiguous United States: 143
Republic of Korea: 2
Puerto Rico: 1
NEXRAD radars continuously scan a 3D picture of the skies using one of several predetermined volume coverage patterns (VCP). Weather Lab provides you access to all scans in the volume, giving you the full spatial picture from which to visualize the structure of a storm.
