Radar data provide precipitation information in high temporal and spatial resolution. They are a valuable data basis for water management tasks in urban drainage.
Radar data can, for example, be used to improve the quality of precipitation runoff simulations. In areas without ground based observations, a rainfall runoff simulation is only made possible by radar data.
The event-specific processing of historical radar data is possible for each of the 17 weather radars of the German Weather Service (5-minute DX product). In general radar data are available for Germany since 2001.
In addition, depending on the radar product type (radar reflectivity in polar coordinates), it is possible to process data from different national weather services. Experiences exist for data from Météo France and IMGW (Poland).
The radar data processing includes the following correction procedures:
We prepare radar data and provide rainfall information in various formats according your requirements:
Would you like to do the radar data processing yourself? Use NVIS (NVIS is currently only available in German).
