Cidd is a X-based, real-time data display application which supports PPI, CAPPI, and cross sectional views. Cidd is the main display tool within the Auto-Nowcast Environment. It is highly configurable and is used to display the majority of the MDV and SPDB formated data produced within the Environment.
