The VCPExplorer version 2.0.2 is a tool to aid in visualizing radar beam paths with
respect to the surrounding terrain and the uncertainties in echo height measurements.
Every WSR-88D and TDWR is available for viewing in the United States and its
territories. High resolution terrain maps are associated with each radar.


A user manual is available for download, although it is from a previous version. The functionality should be the same. ( VCPExplorerManual.pdf, 1.53MB). To download the software, go to the following URL (Note: this URL is not on a U.S. Government web server):
