Legacy Images

Legacy Image/Data Directories

The following directory locations are going away:

  • /adds/data - Legacy ADDS data directories
  • /gis - Legacy support directory for OpenLayers applications

New Image/Data Filenames

The new images all adhere to a file name convention. The name convention is:

    yyyymmdd_hhnn_Fff_prod_level_param_reg.gif

    where:
    yymmdd - Year month and day
    hhnn - Hour and minute (optional)
    Fff - Forecast hour (optional)
    prod - Type of data such as "metar" or "rap"
    level - Vertical level of data such as "sfc" or "300"
    param - Parameter displayed such as "wspd" or "temp"
    reg - Region covered by plot (optional)

There are a set of most recent filenames. Typically this is the fullname with the date truncated off the beginning of the filename. All images are archived in directories by date and possibly by hour. So there will be an archived name:

/data/products/icing/20181121/18/20181121_18_F01_fip_050_sev.gif

and a most recent as:

/data/products/icing/F01_fip_050_sev.gif
