This paper describes a knowledge-based weather chart understanding system named WERP, which is working as a picture processing part of our Information understanding System Of BAsic weather Report (ISOBAR). WERP is designed to extract necessary information from a weather chart for generating weather report sentences explaining the chart. This system is based on a structural model of the weather charts. Here, we study what problems are involved in weather chart understanding, how they are solved and how an actual system is organized. Also, picture-processing techniques for weather chart processing and some experimental studies are considered.
