How to use this website:
This webportal is a joint effort by the INCA-CE partnership. It provides a visualisation of nowcasting model (INCA) output for the whole Central European domain for a few parameters. The site has been built on Openlayers technology and implements some standard user experiences that are widely known (from e.g. using Google Maps), such as zooming and panning. Additionally, there are a lot more features implemented in this portal.
The INCA model (Integrated Nowcasting Through Comprehensive Analysis) was developed at the National Weather Service of Austria (ZAMG) and plays a central role in the EU co-funded project INCA-CE (see www.inca-ce.eu). Within this project, not only the INCA model itself is further developed, but especially the link to application partners (civil protection, hydrology, road safety) is established and the needs of both sides (meteorological and application) are investigated and links are buing built.
The INCA system makes use of measurement data. As with all measurements, these are prone to errors. Although a robust error checking and filtering mechanism is in place, there is no guarantee that all measurement errors can be detected and handled correctly. Therefore, unrealistic artefacts may appear in this visualisation (especially concerning precipitation). Consequently the displayed information should be examined with care.
The precipitation composite is built from INCA simulations provided by ZAMG, SHMI, CHMI, ARPA-FVG, ARSO and covers the following domains: Austria, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Northern Italy (Veneto region), Slovenia. This product is currently in a testing phase and should therefore be used with caution.
