This program explores the evolution of the ubiquitous weather map seen in local and national newspapers and on television, both in local news reports and the now famous Weather Channel. The author, a meteorological cartographer, examines the various technologies used for this purpose from 1812 until the present, including kites, balloons, radar, satellites, and other devices of increasing sophistication.
