Automatic Tracking Chart Creation/Update

When the system is started and as new storm data is received via the HURRTRAK ONLINE service, the system will automatically update the storm's current position and official forecast track on any "open" tracking chart.  This feature adds an additional level of  automation to the system thus reducing the need for backup personnel support.

Below are a series of screens that demonstrate how this function operates...


Initially, either the user selects a map and plots the storm's current position and forecast track or it is done automatically when the system is started.  Here is Hurricane Opal on 10/04/1995 at 5 AM EDT.


If the system is setup to automatically receive storm updates via the HURRTRAK Online service, when the 11 AM Opal data "arrives", the open tracking chart will be redrawn showing the new information.
