Number / Title: 16-020:  Common National Capability for Forecast and Hazard Graphics Generation for Briefings, Webpages and Social Media


NWS Offices require a common national capability to generate consistent and up-to-date forecast and hazard graphics (or have graphics already ready) that encompass the full suite of our products for use in briefings, on our webpages and via Social Media. Our partners/customers should also have the ability to access these graphics for their use as well. This requirement does not introduce new products and is not intended to be a substantial change to our current products. It also does not attempt to make new standards for already existing graphics.
