Abstract
NOAA has identified a problem with the display and usability of satellite imagery on NWS websites. This proposal provides analysis of the feasibility and usability of a proposed system to address this concern. Our goal in the project is to create a heuristically sound conceptual design and tool set for display and interaction with satellite imagery on the NWS site. The project will also explore possible components for the integration and presentation of weather satellite imagery, other important weather data and information as well examine the processing tools necessary to achieve the end user functionality desired in the solicitation. The work will include a proof of concept demonstration for NOAA and will culminate in an operational concept model.
