STORM Virtual Globe places raw precipitation data at your fingertips, displaying each data point from the selected product on a three-dimensional globe viewer. If not using IMERG or 3AGPROF-DAY, you can drag the slider to change the currently visible interval to any place in the granule, with an orange box providing a visual aide to show where the interval will appear. Once the data is displayed, mouse over the data points to see the raw values in the space above the scale.
Radar data adds the ability to see data not just on a globe, but above it. When the DPR or CMB product is chosen, precipitation rate values appear above the globe's surface. This allows three-dimensional representations of storms. Mousing over these points displays not only the precipitation rate in mm/hr, but also the altitude.
