Wmo is a system of systems

WMO is a “system of systems”

  • WMO programmes directly contribute to GEO societal benefit areas

    • Weather (WWW), Disasters (DPM), Water (HWR)Climate (WCP with co-sponsored GCOS and WCRP)Agro-meteorology (AMP), and indirectly more

  • WMO’s World Weather Watch (WWW) includes 3 major operational systems:

    • Global Observing System (GOS)

    • Global Data Processing and Forecasting System (GDPFS)

    • Global Telecommunication System (GTS)

  • WMO Information System (WIS) will expand the GTS with new functions and connectivity to meet wider needs beyond WWW and even WMO


Some gts characteristics

Some GTS characteristics

  • Integrated network interconnecting NMSs worldwide, using point-to-point and multipoint circuits, terrestrial & satellite links

  • Hierarchical structure at 3 levels:

    • Main Telecom Network : 3 World Centres and 15 Regional Hubs

    • 7 Regional Meteorological Telecom Networks

    • 180+ national centres for data collection/concentration/distribution

  • Designed for operational time-critical data exchange among the global community of National Met Centres (NMC) and a few other agencies;

  • Operated and funded by the NMSs; based on WMO-agreed rules (codes, abbreviated bulletin headings, protocols, procedures)

  • Main features: exceptional reliability, continuity, timeliness

Cg xiv 2003

Cg-XIV (2003)

The multiplicity of systems of the different Programmes causes incompatibilities, inefficiencies, duplication of efforts and higher overall costs.

Congress approved the concept of the WMO Information System (WIS), which should provide a single coordinated global infrastructure for the collection and sharing of information in support of all WMO and related international programmes;

EC-LVI (2004)

Identified WIS to be one of the key contributions of WMO to GEOSS; established a coordination mechanism across TCs.

EC-LVII (2005)

Decided to accelerate development and implementation of WIS beginning implementation, at least in some countries, in 2006 instead of 2008, as originally planned.


Wis brings new features and opportunities

WIS brings new features and opportunities

New!

  • Interoperable information exchange standards, functions and services through Portal architecture allowing a variety of codes, protocols, and data representation forms

  • Inter-disciplinarydiscovery, retrieval and exchange of information in real and non-real time through a single entry point in each country

  • Open to all users for data discovery, to authorized users for data access (according to national data policies)

  • Data are described in on-line catalogues using metadata based on ISO 19139

  • Industry standards and off-the-shelf hardware and software systems to ensure cost-effectiveness and inter-operability

National centre nc

National Centre (NC)

  • Provides information collected/generated in the country to a GISC or DCPC

  • Serves as portal for national users and/or administrates their access to WIS

  • Several NCs in a country are possible (not just the NMC)

Data Collection and Production Centre (DCPC)

  • Provides the programme-specific data & products for international exchange

  • Supports information “Push” and ”Pull” mechanisms

  • Generates, maintains,makes accessible and provides to GISCs metadata catalogues of its data & products


Global information system centre gisc

Global Information System Centre (GISC)

  • Receives information from NCs and DCPCs

  • Exchanges information (data and metadata) with other GISCs

  • Disseminates, within its area of responsibility, the entire set of WMO data and products for routine global exchange

  • Generates, maintains and makes accessible metadata catalogues of all data and products for global echange

  • Ensures around-the-clock, reliable and secure operations

WIS Implementation

Development of:

  • Metadata catalogues

  • Internet portals

  • Data acquisition and discovery service

  • Data distribution service: push and pull

  • Monitoring and control functions

  • Operational aspects like data synchronisation, back-up, administrative issues, etc.

    through pilot projects …


Main wis pilot projects

Main WIS Pilot Projects

  • JCOMM: GISC-E2EDM prototype (Obninsk, Russian Federation);

  • CBS: VPN Pilot Project in RAs II and V;

  • CCl: CliWare (Obninsk, Russian Federation);

  • EUMETNET: UNIDART project (Uniform data request interface);

  • CBS: SIMDAT / RA VI Virtual GISC project involving 10 leading centres in RA II, IV, V and VI;

  • CAgM: WAMIS (World Agrometeoroloigcal Information Service, Republic of Korea);

  • CAS: THORPEX/TIGGE (THORPEX Interactive Grand Global Ensemble)


Wmo information system wis

EU-funded SIMDAT / RA VI Virtual GISC project- A portal will be installed on each site running SIMDAT software and will give users a single view of all the data available at all sites. A demonstration at CBS-Ext(069 (Nov. 2006) will show some of the portals and that users can discover the data from the different sites.

Some GISCs will become operational offering metadata; Internet portals; “push/pull” services; performance monitoring;

Some DCPCs and NCs, will be linked to the GISCs;

Data discovery service operational;

Development and implementation of the WIS training components

Regional implementation plans will be developed;

Network performance monitoring

WIS Deliverables (2007 – 2008)


Wis and geoss

WIS and GEOSS

  • GEOSS comprises a GEO Information System of Systems (GEO-ISS)

  • GEO-ISS to serve 9 societal benefit areas and provide 6 main functions in each of these areas:

    • data collection, management, storage, routine distribution, on request retrieval and interactive services

  • WIS (including IGDDS) is a core contributor to GEO-ISS

    • covering mainly the weather, climate and water-related themes

    • providing all 6 functions for relevant data

    • under the responsibility of WMO

  • It is expected that other networks provided by other communities will serve the needs of other themes, all being interoperable


Potential wis contributions to geoss

Potential WIS contributions to GEOSS

  • WIS will provide data and products related to WMO programmes contributing to GEO (in particular for weather, climate, water, natural disasters related societal benefit areas)

  • WIS will offer access to these data for other GEO users outside WMO

  • WIS can potentially assist in other GEO data exchanges, if technically compatible and cost-efficient

  • WIS’ multidisciplinary, global, multifunction architecture could serve as an example for other relevant networks needed for the GEO information exchange


Wmo information system wis

GEO-NETCast within GEOSS (1)

  • GEO-NETcast (a component of GEO-ISS) provides a high-capacity (satellite dissemination) service available for all GEO themes

  • GEO-NETCast will have certain components in common with WIS, e.g.,

    • IGDDS/EUMETCAST is a contribution to GEO-NETCast & WIS

    • use of common data management standards

  • GEO-NETcast governance will take into account the overall GEO-ISS architecture and requirments of data providers and users, and infrastructure providers
