Operational system versions

VersionDateChange
1.0Jun, 2016

METAR + RAP with distance, terrain, water mask, and worst-case condition tests

 Mar 15, 2017

New terrain and worst-case tests, new NDFD terrain grid, fixed ceiling AGL bug

 Apr 11, 2017Use new ceiling field from full-domain RAP re-projected onto Alaska 242 grid
 Jun 1, 2017Terminated version 1.0
1.5Jun 1, 2017Use RAP C&V fields modified by James Pinto's calibration algorithm
 Jun 13, 2017Bug discovered that was possibly preventing the calibrated RAP from being used

Oct 30, 2017Dynamically updated RAP calibration
2.0Oct 31, 2017Cloud mask added
