Automatic weather station, one of the most significant observation instruments in China, has several particular characteristics, including precise parts, complex structure and various failures. Traditional training mode always relies on physical instruments which need large amounts of investment with long update cycle. During process of training, it is subject to making damage to instruments and trainees, which leads to ineffective even terminated training. Therefore, one new training mode is badly in need. Based on Web3D technology, this paper proposes one feasible virtual training application which takes into account particular characteristics of training for automatic weather station. It also describes an overall training plan, technology architecture, major module design and detailed implementation. This application has filled the blank of virtual Web3D training for automatic weather station, and opened up one new training approach. Also, the application scope of Web3D technology has been extended, especially into virtual training of specialized instruments.
