GR3 Color Tables
« on: August 16, 2014, 07:13:43 PM »
I'm still new at GR3 and all of the sites you guys listed don't exist from what I've seen.. I'm looking for DBZ color tables for both rain/snow .. and how do you change backgrounds in GR3?

Hi Mike,

Attached are the color tables I use with GR3 ver. 2. The background within ver. 2 cannot be changed. You have to use either the NAIP maps or use a solid color background, unless someone has figured a way around this.

Hello guys, i would like to chime in here. First of there is no snow DBZ or not that im aware of as Grlevelx does not support winter weather radar. But if you go into HCA and look on the left hand side you will see WS or IC thas for Wet snow and ICE, As for putting a new back round in Grlevelx that is not possable in the new version 2.17 as in the old version you could. And if im correct you are talking about The display and how it looks. I also know that you can not change the color tables or everything as in Base Rell and storm rell and so on wich u used to. Now i could be wrong on this as i do have color tables that i used to use wich i wana use again but i havent found a way to put them in so. Hope this helpes,Also if some one knows a way to put color tables in please help me. Good god

Here are the ones I'm using, some copied, some created. The one for base reflectivity does a good job showing none precipitation (outflow boundaries, etc.) in shades of grey and slate, and the other colors seem to do a better job indicating the actual intensity.
Base Reflectivity: fade_reflectivity(2).pal
Base Velocity: Pueblo_BV.pal
Storm Relative Velocity: Pueblo_SRV.pal
Echo Tops: new_echotops.pal

Duh, ".pal" files are not permitted...the ".txt" equivalent is attached.  ](*,)

Hola everyone  8-) Been a little silent over here, as I've been working on my dissertation for school, but I have recently created a couple of color tables that I figured I could share. These are all for GREarth, but eventually I will create some for GR3  :-) Enjoy!

Hello Gang I have had my grlevelx for a very long time now and love it and the community is great as well those who make color tables. I have Another Request. I cant seem to find a BR Color Table that will pick up the rain good at all. Meaning it will show rain in other parts of the state and when I look out side its Raining. So im gunna need to delete some of these color tables and add new ones. What im asking is can any one make a HD Smooth and shows every were where its Raining as this is important to me as what good is the color table if it dosent depict all the rain. again I need a BR HD smooth Quality . Any one

 

anything
