    GRLevel3 Tools

    GRLevel3 is a desktop radar application commonly used in the weather hobbyist community.  GRLevel2 is a more professional and in-depth product.  The products allow you to add "placefiles" which are data feeds into them, pulling in other information and overlaying it on the radar images.  There are also shapefiles, which are map static images that add in more detail too.
