    • Does 3d-LIIVID require a software installation?
      • 3d-LIIVID operates similar to most radars and the displays use Java so there is no software to download or use.

    • Why can't I see the display?
      • Your browser must be Java enabled in order to view the 3d-LIIVID.
      • If the problem persists, close your browser and try to view the page again.
      • Since the radar data is coming from the NWS and a outside source, there is the potential for one or more radar stations to go down. These issues are raWU mailre, but are beyond our control.

    • Where can I get Java and Java support?

    • Why do the isosurface and 3d radar images not appear to be in the correct spot in relation to the base map?
      • This is due to the way the radar station scans the atmosphere.
      • Using the 2d radar along with the isosurface and 3d radar displays can help maintain relationship to the ground.
      • Understanding how radar stations work will assist in understanding how the isosurface and 3d radars are displayed.
      • Find more information on this in the 3d-LIIVID manual.

    • Why does one frame not look correct?
      • This can happen when there is a problem with the data feed from the radar. This is beyond our control.
      • This can also occasionally happen when a frame is not processed correctly through the 3d-LIIVID radar. We are always working to reduce the occurrence of these anomalies.

    • Why are some of the first frames not the correct time and data?
      • This happens when we change from one radar station to the another. It takes one 40 frame loop to clear out all of the old frames for members and 6 frames for non-members.

    • If you still have problems or questions regarding the 3d-LIIVID radar feature then please email

    • This FAQ will be updated as needed.
