3D Model of Joplin Tornado Debris

Steve Ansari from NOAA’s National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) recently provided a file that shows debris from the tornado in a 3D model. You can view it using this KMZ file. A report recently released from NCDC  gives a summary on the Joplin event and includes a flash movie showing the visualization in Google Earth. The software used to create the KMZ file for the 3D model  is the NOAA Weather and Climate Toolkit, which is developed at NCDC.
