Description

RadarScope is a specialized display utility for weather enthusiasts and meteorologists that allows you view NEXRAD Level 3 and super-resolution radar data along with tornado, severe thunderstorm, flash flood, special marine and snow squall warnings, and predicted storm tracks issued by the U.S. National Weather Service. It can display the latest reflectivity, velocity, dual-polarization, and other products from any NEXRAD or TDWR radar site in the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico, Korea, and Okinawa, as well as data from Environment Canada, Australian Bureau of Meteorology, and German Weather Service radars. These aren't smoothed PNG or GIF images, this is native radar data rendered in its original radial format for a high level of detail. Whether you are scanning reflectivity for a mesocyclone's tell-tale hook echo, trying to pinpoint the landfall of a hurricane's eye wall, or looking for small features like velocity couplets in the storm relative radial velocity product, RadarScope gives you the power to view true radial weather radar data. RadarScope displays tornado, severe thunderstorm, flash flood, special marine, and snow squall warnings issued by the U.S. National Weather Service. You can browse the list of active warnings in the information sidebar, select a warning to view the details, and even zoom to the selected warning on the map. Zoom in and out on the map using the mouse or pinch gestures on multi-touch trackpads. Click and drag to scroll around the map. Select one of the 307 different radars in the United States, Canada, Australia, Germany, Korea, Puerto Rico, Guam, or Okinawa. Tap the play button to download and animate over recent images. Display the names of over 25,000 cities and towns on the map as you zoom and scroll. Move the cursor over the color legend to see the data value associated with each color. You can also export the currently displayed map to several common image formats. Meanwhile, RadarScope will retrieve and display updated data automatically and intelligently (approximately every 2 to 10 minutes, depending on the radar scan strategy). You can display radar data from our servers, NOAA's public access web site, or your Allison House subscriber account. RadarScope Pro is an optional auto-renewing subscription with two different tiers to choose from. RadarScope Pro Tier One is an annual subscription that provides access to real-time lightning data in the U.S. and Canada that animates along with the radar loop and up to 30 frames of radar data, including extended loops of super-resolution data. Tier One subscribers can also access optional dual-pane and quad-pane modes for viewing multiple radar products side-by-side. RadarScope Pro Tier Two is an annual or monthly subscription that combines all the features in Tier One with more advanced features, including SPC outlooks, mesoscale discussions, local storm reports, hail size and probability contours, and azimuthal shear contours in the U.S., a 30-day archive of all radar products, and the ability to use subscription features across multiple platforms. If you choose to buy the RadarScope Pro subscription, it will charged to your iTunes account. The subscription will be auto-renewed within 24 hours prior to the end of the current period at the same price you originally paid. Subscriptions may be managed and auto-renewal disabled via your iTunes Account Settings after the purchase. Once purchased, the subscription cannot be cancelled during the active subscription period.

Its ok but could be much better

I like how on the computer you can use a quad panel. I don't like how the warnings don't pop up sometimes. In order for me to see the warnings sometimes I have to switch to AllisionHouse. I feel like for Pro 1 tier people should have access to the SPC outlooks, hail contors, etc. Also I feel like you can add in more stuff that would make this app better. I think you should add the rotation detecor, add in the tornado impact number (ex: 0-10) with 0 being almost no tornado on the ground and 10 with this is a tornado on the ground. And also I feel like you can add in a place for you to add in a custom storm track so we know what time the storm will hit. Please seriously consider this review.

Warning. Your iOS Pro subscription means nothing here. You will need a SECOND subscription.

If Radarscope is going to require a second subscription for iOS subscribers, maybe the developers could state that BEFORE we purchase. It's functional but not worth a SECOND subscription.

Not a Happy Customer

I’ve been using RadarScope since it’s inception at a Pro 2 tier. The company provided an “upgrade” a couple of days ago without actually testing who it performs on older MacBooks, such as the one I own. Message this morning was, “sorry, but we screwed your ears flat and you’ve got to delete RadarScope from your MacBook and purchase another copy from the App Store”. DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY DOWNLOAD UPDATES WITHOUT CONFIRMING THAT ACTUALLY WORK.

I used to be able to zoom using my mouse? Does not work anymore? Can that be fixed? Other than that I love this app. Best Ever

Awesome again!

Thanks for fixing locations and mouse scrolling. This really is the best radar program on the market. I'd really like it if you guys would consider adding the ability to import custom shape files (.shp) as well as .kml files. It would make it easy to import locations during incident response (I need to see territories, my responder staging areas, shelter locations, etc). I don't want these as custom locations because I need to change these during each storm, plus locations are only dots, and I need boundary shapes. Keep up the great work!!

Installed v4 and it deleted all my custom locations. What a pain!

I am not happy with this 4.0 update

2
Not being able to zoom in and out with the trackpad is a VERY large pain for how I use this app. When updating to 4.0 it erased all of my preset locations. PLEASE bring this back in the next update. It is a crutial thing when reporting for the National Weather Service.

Version 4.0 Doesn’t work on High Sierra

2
I’m stuck on High Sierra with my ’11 iMac - the newest version 4.0 breaks this app on High Sierra. No maps, no radar, just a blank screen.
