Summary
Abstract: WXP, the Weather Processor, is a suite of programs/toolkit for analyzing and displaying meteorological data and satellite images. WXP originated at Purdue University but is now being developed by Unisys. It is intended to be an general purpose weather visualization tool for near-real time and archived meteorological data.

The software package handles data broadcast directly by the National Weather Service, reads in and files the data, decodes and parses the information and finally visualizes the data in a variety of formats. The primary audience for the package are meteorologists but is also developed to provide non-meteorologists the ability to view the data with varying degrees of complexity.
