DATA COMPLEXITIES OF LINKING FORECAST DATA TO OBSERVATIONAL DATA
Mine-Weather is an analytical database and visualization system designed to allow companies to probe the accuracy of the weather forecasts they use to plan their activities and preparedness in the case of storm conditions. The Mine-Weather system was recently built and is now in use at a large electric utility in the North Eastern US. The system comprises an analytical database and visualization dashboard and is used for probing the accuracy of weather forecasts.
