    Although not currently displayed on the Cumulative Wind Distribution

map, the 50 knot wind swath in polygon shapefile format would also be desirable.

  • 3.

    Tropical Cyclone Surface Wind Speed Probabilities map related data:

    • -

      Probabilities of winds of at least 34 knots in polygon shapefile format

    • -

      Probabilities of winds of at least 50 knots in polygon shapefile format

    • -

      Probabilities of winds of at least 64 knots in polygon shapefile format

    • -

      Shapefiles available when the GIF images are posted on the NHC web

site

  • 4.

Justification: The first three products identified above are already produced operationally by NHC in a GIF format. The NOAA/USDA JAWF requests that these products be made available in a shapefile format as well. The shapefile format would enable USDA meteorologists to more quickly and precisely overlay NHC products on USDA agricultural data in a GIS, and hence facilitate a more accurate assessment of hurricane impacts on domestic agriculture.

The latter three data sets identified above are not available as operational NHC products. These data are sometimes contained in the Public Advisories and Discussions associated with individual storms, but are not always made available. We request that NHC provide station reports of storm-total rainfall, maximum sustained
