ABSTRACT

Weather forecasts provide various industrial activities with essential information. This study aims to develop a GIS-based prototype application system of the long range weather forecasting which can be applied to the energy industry. As preliminary considerations, some implications of GIS in enhancing the usage of weather and climate information are discussed and a critical investigation on the current service system provided by the Korea Meteorological Administration is undertaken. Some conceptual cornerstones for a more advanced application system in terms of quality of information itself and its service are obtained with special focus on the case of energy industry. Based on these, a prototype, desktop GIS-based application system is developed for utilizing long range weather forecasting information. It is concluded that GIS could provide a highly effective and efficient platform in which various tasks pertaining to long range weather forecasting information, from data management to information service, are accomplished in an integrative way.
