Abstract

Modern technology, particularly computers and weather satellites, and the availability of data provided by coordinated meteorological observing networks, has resulted in enormous improvements in the accuracy of weather forecasting. Satellites, in particular, have given forecasters routine access to observations and data from remote areas of the globe. However, graphical products produced for scientists are not usually suitable for on-air consumption by the general public. WorldWinds, Inc. has spent the last 10 years developing systems that transfer government collected satellite and ground based data into products intended for consumption by the general public. Through collaboration with Baron Services, Inc., this project will develop a solution regarding the lack of NOAA satellite-derived data products that are routinely available to the public through their local television weather broadcast. This solution will provide broadcast meteorologists delivery of many NOAA satellite-derived data products directly through their on-air broadcast systems.
