Subject: Seeking Public Comment and Review on the Experimental

         Enhanced Data Display (EDD) through February 23, 2014


Through February 23, 2014, NWS is seeking public comment and

review on the Experimental Enhanced Data Display (EDD). Developed

at the Pilot Project at the NWS Weather Forecast Office in

Charleston, WV, the EDD is a web-based cross-browser GIS viewer

that provides a single interface to access a wide variety of NWS

weather data in a Google maps format. There are many interactive

components and tools provided with EDD that allow users to layer

and manipulate the data to their needs. The experimental EDD

service is online at: 


Information on accessing and using EDD can be found under EDD’s

help menu in the upper right hand corner of the display.


Comments and feedback on EDD are welcome at:


Comments will be collected from August 20, 2013, until February

23, 2014. At that time, NWS will evaluate feedback and determine

whether to transition the EDD to operational status,

discontinue it, or revise and extend the experimental feedback
