The map type catalog is a summarization of informatin relating to these map types for a particular window. There is a catalog for each of the 14 windows which cover the United States. The catalog includes characteristics of the map types and listings of each map in the data base 25 years of surface pressure maps along with its most similar map type. The document contains synoptic data of the Washington, D.C. window. The map type catalog is primarily intended for use with other forecast aids that stratify weather or specific weather parameters by map type.
