Abstract : This report describes the results of research into a number of aspects of a proposed global meteorological data base. Subjects covered INCLUDE: improvement of formulation of map transformations; a rapid method of obtaining data base coordinates from satellite elements and scanner angles; comparison of two fast-filling algorithms, the maintenance of multiple-and variable resolution data bases; and the operation of maps in the data base coordinate system.
