Description of CODE
CODE is an algorithm development environment for the WSR-88D radar. CODE contains the software and guidance required to create the algorithm development environment on an Intel PC running Red Hat Enterprise Workstation Linux.
- CODE provides a 'clone' of a WSR-88D Radar Product Generator on a workstation which can run existing and user-created algorithms by ingesting WSR-88D Archive level 2 data.
- A secondary use of CODE: studying past weather events by ingesting Level 2 data obtained from the NCEI web site (formerly NCDC) and creating products for analysis.
CODE is Produced in Two Versions:
- National Weather Service Edition - This is the complete version of CODE. Distribution is limited to within the National Weather Service and other U.S. Government Agencies.
- Public Edition - This version of CODE is intended for public release. Certain proprietary software components have been removed to permit release outside the U.S. Government.
Although Red Hat 5 is the official operating system for ORPG, CentOS 5, which is free, has been tested for CODE installation. CODE users can use the CentOS system if Red Hat 5 is not available for CODE installation. CentOS can be downloaded for free from https://www.centos.org/. See Appendix C for the guidance of installing CentOS 5.8 in CODE guidance Volume 1.
