NWS Map Highlighting
- I almost hate to ask, so I've been messing with this for a while and reading what I can find, but I must be missing something.
I'm using version 2011/08/21 16:57
Here's what I've done:
* loaded c_01ja11.zip
* added and enabled shape file
* added and checked offices STO and HNX
* added p/STO/HNX to filter spec
* I get messages from HNX??? with urgent weather bulletins
* I get messages from STO??? with urgent weather bulletins
* Nothing lights-up on the map
Is there something I haven't done?
Is there something not happening to light-up the counties?
With all the hi winds and weather alerts I'm getting, I'd think there would be stuff showing up.
- Of course, the weather that was generating all the alerts went away, so it took a while to get more alerts.
I have put together a zip file of screen shots of my configuration, highlighted shapes, and messages captured from the packet log.
