Graphical Production

Exposes increasingly large quantities of meteorological data to enable meteorologists to forecast and report the weather to a range of customers, both internal and external and across global markets.
Allows meteorologists to interact with graphical data as part of the production process. This will provide the ability to create graphical outputs overlaid on data visualisations.
Lot 2 Templated Production Enables the creation of large numbers of products in predefined formats, to include the automatic and manual population of those products using meteorological data, imagery, and text.
Lot 3 Product Distribution Responsible for the distribution of meteorological products to their intended recipients – both internal and external.
Lot 4 Workflow Automation Manages allocation of work to Operational Meteorologists – balancing workload across available resource.  Improves user experience and efficiency by choreographing processes and launching the tools for the task to be performed.
