GRLevel3 and split screens

Ann Money

I have a GRLevel3 and was browsing Allisonshouse.com. I saw a page and it menetioned something about a split screen. I clicked on the split screen link and it sent me to a picture of what it would look like, but I could not figure out what I needed to download or do to get a split screen. If anyone has an answer or idea. It would be greatly appreciated the link I was talking about is

I actually bought and registered.... :) The GR forum? Would that be on here or at the GRLevel website.
Thanks

Go to "windows" "Single, Two, or Four Panels"
 
If you do not belong to the GR Owners Forum then you are defin missing out. You should sign up. There is a ton of information within that forum.

Have fun.
 
Here's how I have mine set up with storm attributes and warnings windows. I'd be curious to know the arrangement and color tables that other chasers are using.

Here's a screenshot of the color scheme I use:

A few of us were out that day. ;)

Personally, I really don't like the very bright blue colors that the Gibson Ridge software assigns to very light precipitation by default. It doesn't make sense to me that the lightest stuff sticks out so much on the screen, when it really should be the most subtle thing visible. So I put together a simple gradient pattern that fades off into the background (black) on the bottom of the range, but has a break at 65dBz (red to pink) to help make it very easy to distinguish the top extreme of precipitation. The first thing I noticed was that the ground clutter areas around radars became far less distracting. I was a little worried that it would be harder to spot boundaries and other small scale features with the lowered values at the bottom of the scale, but it turns out that they show up quite readily (as seen above).

Here are zip files containing my color palettes:

I have a quick question about this, what is the difference between GRLevel2 and GrLevel3. i have the trail version og GRLevel3 and plan on purchasing it. Is one better than the other?
 
Basically, Level 2 radar data has greater color fidelity (more colors in the range) and more samples per area. The required bandwitch is subsequently larger. In the end Level 2 is really nice to look at, but not-so-great for chasing. At this time, you have to find a service (Allisonhouse is the only one I know of) that will sell you access to the data. It's actually a pretty nice deal they offer, and it's mainly geared towards people like us. For viewing radar from home, it's the best you can get.
