TAPS (Typhoon Analysis and Prediction System) is a system to generate the information about typhoon. TAPS searches several countries’ typhoon model outputs in real time, and it produces the objective forecasting guidance through model outputs. The most typhoon information making steps were changed automatically from TAPS. Typhoon information generating time was reduced, and also the accuracy of the typhoon position forecast has been improved since TAPS was introduced in 2004.
