GRLEVELX COLOR TABLES

 

 

 

       

The following are Tropmet.com color (.PAL) tables for use with GRLevelX radar analysis software.* Each color table (.PAL) is contained within a downloadable ZIP file, just click on the associated file name and save the ZIP file locally on your computer. For GRLevelX software to recognize the PAL file, it must be extracted and saved in the correct folder on your computer. As an example, for a default GRLevel2 Analyst installation these folders can be found at the following path: Program Files>GRLevelX>GR2Analyst. Once you've downloaded the ZIP file, open the folder and extract/save the PAL file into the same sub-folder where your default GRLevelX PAL files are already located. * Note: These files are not to be re-distributed or sold. Some color tables contain transparent elements which are only usable with GRLevel2 products; GRLevel3 may not support PAL files with transparency. By downloading any of these files, the user assumes all responsibility for the download, installation and use of these files and agrees that Tropmet.com will not be held responsible or liable for any problems or issues that arise from their download, installation, or use. Although Tropmet.com does not provide technical support, for basic questions, send an e-mail here.
