AbstractAlgorithms for the automated plotting of meteorological observations of the atmosphere are presented. The computer graphics hardware and software, utilizing a Stromberg Datagraphics 4020 microfilm recorder, is first described. The manual methods for plotting these data, which have in use around the world for many years, are then described, followed by a description of the algorithms for automating the plotting. Results of both manual and automated methods are shown and comparisons are made between the two methods. The computer graphics approach clearly has significant advantages.
