Abstract
RASSIN is a system for professional meterological visualization that has been developed by the Fraunhofer IGD together with the German National Weather Service DWD. The software is being used in DWD's research department. Its scope is the visalization of numerical simulation data and measured data. This results in a very precise and highly interactive weather forecasting. Furthermore, the system serves the meterologists in the evaluaation of new forecast models. RASSIN follows a consistant strategy to perform calculation and visualization only on the original, irregular, dynamic grid of the meterological data. The integration of a new concept for time-critical visualization allows scientific animations. The relized HCI-concept is tailored for users from meteorological sciences.
