Tap into WDT’s automated TornadoTrax algorithm designed to detect violent rotation in storms. This real-time product provides valuable situational awareness for CAT teams.
Our exclusive algorithm was designed to help recovery and restoration teams quickly and efficiently respond to those affected by tornadoes. The outcome is the industry’s first tornado track algorithm.
- Detailed post-event damage maps
- Realtime tornado tracking algorithm
- Expert meteorological analysis
Benefitting from WDT’s advanced radar analysis system; TornadoTrax is able to ingest the highest resolution radar velocity data from all radars within the NEXRAD network across the Continental US to detect rotation in storms. The rotation data is then processed using advanced data distribution techniques to produce the most coherent, seamless depiction possible of potentially tornadic rotation.
A custom approach
Custom assessments can be created in relation to tornadoes that utilize NEXRAD data and other proprietary information to determine the occurrence and impact of tornadoes at a particular location. These assessments may focus on differentiating between tornadic and non-tornadic (i.e. straightline wind events). Contact today with you specific report needs.
Previous to now, only National Weather Service Local Storm Reports were available to immediately determine where tornadoes have occurred. These tornado reports poorly represent the location of a tornado because they frequently indicate a point near where a tornado was observed by a storm spotter and do not depict the actual location of the tornado path. The holistic approach of merging TornadoTrax with ground truth reports of confirmed tornadoes gives the fastest and most accurate estimation of where tornado damage may likely have occurred within minutes of the storm.
