Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) Tool:

The experimental Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) Tool can overlay multiple fields of interest: ceiling, visibility, flight category, winds, relative humidity, temperature, icing, satellite, radar (base and composite reflectivity), GAIRMETs, SIGMETs, METARs, TAFs, and PIREPs. All 3D data are interpolated to AGL altitudes and can be sliced horizontally on 1000 ft. intervals up to 5000 ft. Data is time synchronized to go back up to 6 hours and forward up to 6 hours. The tool has high-resolution basemaps from ESRI, including colored relief and satellite. Overlays include navigational aids, airports, and heliports for the entire United States. More detail is revealed as you zoom in and individual layers can be turned on or off independently.
