Wind Vector Maps

Hay all
My first post here so be gentle.
I see these animated regional maps that show wind direction and have searched the net for more info in vain.
Can anyone give some hints or information related to this?

re: Wind Vector Maps

Not sure if you are referring to GRIB files? If you don't know what these are perhaps this is the case? If so, have a look at this and Googling will reveal more info as well:
