Abstract
Sophisticated visualization enables experts as well as lay persons to extract knowlegde from complex data. This is particularly true for visualising the massive amounts of data involved in meteorological observations and simulations. These are of interest to scientists, to forecasters, and to the general public. The paper presents and discusses a range of solutions for meteorlogical visualization. Tpoics covered include systems for the production of TV weather forecasts, for the analysis ofsimulation output by experts, for personalised weather information in the Web, and for meteorological visualisation using Virtual Studio and Augmented Reality technology.
