IntuVue RDR-4000 Weather Radar Pilot's Guide

FULL COVERAGE GROUND MAP MODE (MAP)

The RDR-4000 Weather Radar System can be used in Ground Map
mode to identify terrain features. For ground mapping use the following
procedure:
1. System Control: 1 or 2 (dual
system) or 1 (single system)
2. Mode: MAP
3. Range: As desired
4. Gain: If necessary, adjust for
optimum observation of terrain
features.
The purpose of the MAP mode is to
aid in identifying prominent terrain
features, such as coastlines, lakes,
and large built-up urban areas. MAP
mode provides an extended ground map
picture by piecing together individual
scans and combining them in the
memory for display. Reflectivity data
that is considered ground clutter (and
removed from the weather views) is the basis for the Ground Map. Data
from the terrain database is not used, providing an independent
verification of position. The Ground Map is generated automatically and
simultaneously with weather.
See the following pictures for a comparison of a MAP display and a
satellite photo of the same area.
