The task of Weather forecasting requires visualization of large data volumes. Numerical Weather Prediction models (NWP) are essential tools, and are typically run in batch systems for predetermined areas where data is available only at the end of each complete run. The NWPs are often run for as large an area as the available computer resources allow, this(More)
The availability of large displays (Wallace et al, 2005) with very high resolutions is creating new possibilities in a work situation. In some areas the resolution is directly related to the amount of information that is in active use. Weather forecasting using high resolution modells, is one of such areas. A typical working environment for a forecaster at(More)
The spatial resolution of publicly available numerical weather forecasts is largely limited by the computing resources of the originating weather services. Only selected parameters are available to the public from many weather services. We present a scalable system for distributed computation of high resolution symbiotic numerical weather forecasts.
