2019 HURRTRAK Software Enhancements...

Click on the item headings below for more information (some include video links)

"ExpertEase" – Our highly rated ExpertEase, will continue in the 2019 software and includes all 4 seasons making it a year round benefit. Please note that this feature is ONLY available to users who maintain the current version of the Hurrtrak software. In order to continue receiving these updates, you need to upgrade to the 2019 software. For those less familiar with the feature, ExpertEase is a superior tool in your data arsenal. On a daily basis via video update, our chief meteorologist discusses current tropical (and now also non-tropical) conditions as well as what is likely to occur in the near term. These observations are integrated within the Hurrtrak program throughout the Atlantic Hurricane season and also available via a web browser. Unique to PC Weather Product’s portfolio, ExpertEase gives you “inside” knowledge of the factors and conditions affecting the path and strength of active tropical storms as well as the details on winter storms and spring severe weather. Remember, it is available to all users with current Hurrtrak software installed.

Seven (7) day forecast support –  While the National Hurricane Center is not yet supplying/releasing forecast beyond 5 days… we expect they will within a few years.  In anticipation of this we have modified the Hurrtrak system to support forecast positions out to 168 hour (7 days).  The good news is while NHC may not be releasing day 6 and 7 forecast yet, you have the option of manually entering extended forecast information (from other sources, such as forecast models) in 2019. This includes utlization of the "what if" capability of the system.

Enhanced What if capabilities –  We have enhanced the "What IF" forecast function to allow the user to specify the exact forecast positions, max wind and wind radii at 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 120, 144 and 168 hour forecast times.

Precipitation Report –  We have introduced a new report thw shows the forecast rainfall totals by location or location group. The report shows the forecast totals for day 1, day 2, day 3, days 1-3, days 1-5 and 1 week.  This report can be generated 12 months a year, with or without a current storm being active.

Enhanced forecast track depiction –  Introduced the ability to clearly depict current and prior forecast tracks in different colors.

User Interface improvements –  Improved copy and past capabilities for tracking maps and animation frames.

Shape File Export –  We have added the ability to export forecast rainfall amount to ESRI shape files.

Enhanced Max Wind Thematic –  We have added more information to the thematic wind display... such as time of max wind, etc..

Hurricane Forecast Wind Estimation improvements –  With concept of constant improvement... we have continued to make enhancements to the wind estimation routines within the system.  All of these changes are "under the covers" within the program code.

Storm Surge Improvements Our 2019 release includes the latest SLOSH basin updates.

Animation interface improvments – Decision Arc and range ring animation easier.

Miscellaneous technical and user interface improvements - Several internal enhancements to keep up with the changing security nature of data and more consistent user interface methods.
