Data Characteristics

The data set to be explored is composed of 9 separate data files. Each reflects a time step where information was gathered in a 360 sweep along 1 degree radials in a clockwise sequence. The sweeps move in a series, from lower to higher elevation .

One file contained x, y, z coordinate positions in the following format:
- Number of total coordinates (in ASCII)
- X, Y, Z floating points for each coordinate (in Binary)

The other 8 files contained reflectivity data that corresponds directly to the positions defined by the position file, in the following format:
- Number of total coordinates (in ASCII)
- floating points values (reflectivity) for each coordinate (in Binary)
