Load the NTAP file into your /RADARVP subdirectory. The file now needs to be translated into Radar ViewPoint's optimized radar data file format (.RAD file) ...
The following example assumes the NTAP data file is named NTAP.TXT and the Radar ViewPoint data file will be named NTAP.RAD. You can use any name you like, but we do recommend the .RAD filename extension be used for Radar ViewPoint optimized data files.
At the DOS prompt (you may use a DOS session under Windows):
You may now use Radar ViewPoint to view the radar information. While in Radar ViewPoint, pick the Open... command from the Radar menu and select NTAP.RAD. You may need to zoom to the area of the radar information to get a good look at the data...good luck.
It may be advantageous to look at several NTAP reports at one time. This is done simply by merging the universal radar files together before using MAKERADR. Here is a sample of merging four NTAP files together: At the DOS prompt (you may use a DOS session under Windows):
PRERADAR NTAP1.TXT NTAP PRERADAR NTAP2.TXT NTAP /APPEND PRERADAR NTAP3.TXT NTAP /APPEND PRERADAR NTAP4.TXT NTAP /APPEND
