The European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts is developing highly interactive and parameterised web based graphical forecast products aimed at forecasters. Built upon a Service Oriented Architecture, the application allows users to create customized graphical products on demand and to interact directly with the plots by performing actions such as zooming and panning. Products are also provided via OGC web map services (WMS) so they can be integrated into the users' own GIS software. We are currently half-way into the two year project and have demonstrated full functionality in tests with a limited number of users.
