RADAR PPI Scope Overlay

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

RADAR PPI Scope Overlays are used to position a RADAR image over a station at the correct resolution. The archive maintains several different RADAR resolution types, and each station has multiple overlays available for use with geo-location. To identify the overlay required, the Radar PPI Scope Image will have a code to identify which resolution was used to record the image.
