Abstract : The paper describes methods of classifying surface and upper air weather maps into map types through computer techniques, and various applications in the development of forecast aids. Specific emphasis is placed on three applications, namely: (1) case studies of special weather phenomenon, (2) objective forecast studies, and (3) synoptic climatological forecast aids. The applications are illustrated using actual results from several 4 WWg projects.
