This page lists demos of NLG systems available online.

Pollen Forecast for Scotland

Ross Turner's Pollen Forecast for Scotland NLG demo takes as input a pollen value for each of 6 areas of Scotland, and generates a textual pollen forecast.

Project Reporter generates dynamic web-based project status reports from files created with Microsoft Project or other compatible project management software. Reports feature hyperlinked textual descriptions of project elements, as well as coordinated multimodal display with an interactive Gantt chart applet.


RISK – 10 Year Coronary Heart Disease Predictor aims to show various ways of presenting data. Input: medical data values. Output: tabular overview, textual summary, visual (comic-like), and chart diagram. Java applet.

Spatial descriptions for Kirklees in West Yorkshire

STOP produces personalised smoking-cessation leaflets, based on responses to a smoking questionnaire. The online version of STOP is a simplified version of the main STOP system, which is based on paper input and output.


SumTime-Mousam generates textual weather forecasts from numerical weather data. This demo shows how textual descriptions of changes in wind speed and direction are generated from wind data.

There is a corresponding dataset called SumTime-Meteo available.

A related demo generates pollen forecasts for Scotland. This may be easier for non-meteorologists to understand, and the demo shows the human corpus texts as well as the computer-generated texts.

TEMSIS automatically generates air quality reports for the Franco-German border area in the Moselle-Saar region.
