Expanding The Power of AWIPS With Plugins


The National Weather Service AWIPS (Advanced Weather Information Processing System) has been modified many times to accommodate changes in user and data requirements. Often, these changes were implemented with little more than modifications to tables, but others required detailed knowledge of the software design to properly modify the code. Over the years these modifications, including the migration to the Linux operating system, have contributed to increasing the complexity of the code and the size of some software modules. The objective of the work described herein is to develop an approach that simplifies development and integration of more powerful new applications with AWIPS code. These applications would be able to generate manual graphics, create charts, and display image data, and overlay them appropriately on other data displayed on AWIPS.
