Research Institution
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of extending a popular and successful commercial GIS (Geographic Information System) architecture to provide 2D/3D visualization and analysis of weather information.Currently, weather data is routinely analyzed and displayed using a variety of specialized software technologies. GIS systems provide richer support for various geospatial operations, including mapping, geographic data handling, and spatial query/analysisfunctionality, but do not include native support for weather. This has resulted in current applications that use weather information being implemented as stove-piped systems with limited capability for integration with other mapping and geographicanalysis systems. The proposed research would result in a
