Meanwhile, he made the corresponding explanation on China's weather radar application data model and data transform layer, radial coordinate system, radial feature type in application, specifically pointing out the development prospects of the future data model in various radar applications.
In the lecture, teachers and students proposed various questions actively and Yuan Ho gave his unique opinion on every issue, which arouse thoughts exchange and collision. The lecture played a good role in broadening the horizons of teachers and students and strengthening the academic exchange atmosphere.
