What is FOREST?

FOREST stands for Forecast & Observation Research and Evaluation Science Tool and is for user-orientated visualisation, navigation and analysis of geophysical data. The concept of FOREST is that big data can be explored and visualised directly from source rather than displaying pre-generated content.

FOREST is relocatable, reusable, modular, scriptable, with a local version and remote (cloud) version available. The version launched from this website is connected to data held by the Met Office on the AWS cloud.

FOREST is open-source software that is free to download and use. It is intended to enhance collaboration and sharing of information between the Operational Meteorology community and the Science community.
