Abstract
Phase II of the New METSAT Display project will produce a working beta version of the Earth Imaging product customized for NWS/NOAA as outlined in the Phase I proof of concept. This product will ingest imagery from a data source (in this case a web service of NOAA satellite imagery) and display it accurately on a globe of the Earth. Vector data such as roads, cities, towns, counties, states, etc. will be layered with the images. In addition other data—for example Radar imagery and forecast data—will be integrated with the satellite imagery. Users will be provided with an abundance of tools to localize and analyze the imagery and weather data. Imagery will be automatically ingested from a web service and provide real time data to users. Users will be able to select an area of interest and display the most recent, or archived data for that region. Users will be able to animate the available imagery in order to detect patters and weather developments in their chosen area of interest.
