A major downside to the rapid developments in communications technology, however, is in the area of graphics.On the one hand, developments in computer technology enable production of a vast array of graphic material, and on the other hand, lack of formal training to produce expertise in communication graphics has resulted in a scarcity of individuals with design capabilities. These guidelines attempt to bridge this gap. They are intended to provide information and assistance on how to develop graphics to suit the unique needs and circumstances of NMSs. They identify relevant graphic design principles and issues, and a range of resources and processes to help facilitate visual communication of meteorological information using the Internet, television, print and other visual media. The guidelines also present processes and technology solutions that attempt to address the special situation and needs of smaller Services which have limited resources, but which wish to improve their internal capability to produce graphic material.
