The Pilot Reports (PIREPs) Page contains 3 major sections:
- The first section contains a link to another web page containing
a Java Applet which allows users to zoom interactively to the region
of their choosing and to interrogate the PIREP icon for the full raw
PIREP text. This has the highest complexity and is therefore the
slowest but is the most valuable if interactive data browsing is
- The second section is a table containing links to GIF images
which are pre-generated and ready for viewing. They are
re-created about every 15 minutes. Plots of aircraft icing
and turbulence are available as well as the sky and weather
conditions reported by aircraft.
- The third section contains a link to a web FORM which allows
users to enter his/her own plotting information to obtain a
customized PIREPs plot. Submitting the information on the FORM runs a
process to create a GIF image of the most recent data possible and
allows a user to create a region of their choosing. It does, however,
take longer for the resulting GIF image to appear since the process
of creating the image must be run. Another help
page for the FORM exists.
