NMAP development status and plans
NMAP is used operationally at the NCEP service centers to display meteorological data and to generate graphical forecast products. The program is also used operationally by the Pacific and Alaskan Regions to support their graphical product generation requirements, and by the River Forecast Centers to support the Quantitative Precipitation Forecast program. NMAP is being integrated into the AWIPS environment as a base-line AWIPS application planned for release in build 5.2.1. This paper presents an overview of NMAP functionality, recent enhancements, and improvements planned for the near future.
