Did you ever just want to get a quick snapshot of the
tropical situation without having to get into the full capabilities of the
HURRTRAK system? A new feature of the
HURRTRAK system called QuickPlot does just that. It allows the user to
find out exactly what is going on... FAST. From there, the user can
opt to use the full capabilities of the entire HURRTRAK system with the simple
click of the mouse.
QuickPlot is typically selected from the desktop however it
can also be initiated from within the main HURRTRAK program. It quickly
displays a single tracking chart image showing all of the "current" storms.
An example is shown below along with a list of the available plotting options.
Notice that the key functions of Email sending, printing and saving of images
is available. This allows you to easily share the QuickPlot information.

course of a tropical season!
