  • WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS)

  • http://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/www/wigos/index_en.html


Background

Background

  • Cg-XVI (May-June 2011):

  • Decided to implement WIGOS - Res.50 (Cg-XVI)

  • Requests theregional associations:

    • To develop their regional WIGOS implementation plans;

    • To coordinate WIGOS implementation activities with the WIS in their operating plans and work programmes;

    • To promote capacity-building and outreach activities to assist Members in the implementation of WIGOS;

  • Requested TCs to:

    • Guide technical aspects of WIGOS implementation

    • Incorporate WIGOS in their operating plans

    • Provide technical guidance and advice to Members and RAs

    • Develop guidance for the design and evolution of WIGOS

    • Develop standards to support WIGOS

    • Update WMO Regulatory Material, (TR, WIGOS Manual,..)


Background1

Background

  • EC-LXIII established ICG-WIGOS to coordinate implementation of WIGOS

  • ICG-WIGOS established its working structure:

    • TT on WIGOS Implementation Plan (closed)

    • TT on WIGOS Regulatory Material (RS)

    • TT on WIGOS Metadata (BH)

    • TT on WIGOS Quality Management (…)

  • Major outcomes:

    • WIGOS Framework Implementation Plan (WIP)

    • Regional WIGOS Implementation Plans (R-WIPs)

    • Outreach (TCs, RAs, Members, partners,…)

    • Structure of WIGOS sections in TechRegs and WIGOS Manual

    • Responsibilities of TC and RA

    • Widen scope of WIGOS component OSs (Hydrological OS)

    • Development of the Self-assessment checklist

    • Draft of CD and C&O strategies


Background2

Background

  • TOR of TT-WRM:

  • To develop a high-level WIGOS Framework Architecture;

  • To review the relevant parts of WMO Technical Regulations (WMO-No. 49)and other relevant regulatory material and make a proposal for WIGOS related regulatory material;

  • To develop the WIGOS regulatory material;

  • To propose mechanism for the update and maintenance of the WIGOS regulatory material;

  • To submit the draft WIGOS regulatory material to the ICG-WIGOS for its coordination with and reporting to EC and for its eventual recommendation for approval by Cg-XVII;

  • To coordinate regularly with ICG-WIGOS as needed and report at least annually to ICG-WIGOS on progress;

  • To complete its tasks by July 2015.


Background3

Background

  • TOR of TT-WMD:

  • To identify the information that is needed to allow the majority of users to use WIGOS observations in appropriate contexts and in a defensible way;

  • To create the WIGOS Core Metadata Standard that allows the essential information to be exchanged unambiguously, regardless of the format used for the transfer;

  • To define a mechanism for maintaining the WIGOS Core Metadata Standard, including how metadata might be provided that is additional to the Core and coordinate with the ICG-WIGOS Task Team on Regulatory Material (TT-WRM) on any appropriate documentation as needed for WIGOS related Manual(s) and Guide(s);

  • To implement within the WIGOS Core Metadata Standard, and the WMO Core Metadata Profile, a standard method of providing users with an indication of the quality of the data, and to do so in a way that distinguishes with the quality management of the data (“quality of the observation”) and ensuring that the user is able to identify which applications the data are suitable for (“classification” of the observation”);

  • To coordinate regularly with the ICG-WIGOS as needed and report at least annually to the ICG-WIGOS on the progress;

  • To complete its tasks and hand over additional requirements to its successor (if required) in time for approval by Cg-17.

Background4

Background

  • EC-64 (June 2012):

    • AdoptedWIGOS Framework Implementation Plan (WIP), version 1.0, and requested:

      • Members, RAs and TCs to organize their activities as to realize WIP

      • CBS & CIMO to provide technical lead in WIGOS implementation

      • ICG-WIGOS to keep WIP under regular review, monitor the progress, update WIP and report to Cg-17

  • EC-65 (May 2013):

    • Adopted the updated version of WIPversion 2.0

    • AdoptedImplementation Plan for the evolution of global observing systems (EGOS-IP):

      • Members and TCs should address the 115 actions listed in the Plan


Understanding wigos plans

Understanding WIGOS Plans

  • WIGOS Framework Implementation Plan (WIP) :

    • Plan to develop practices & procedures to be documented in WIGOS Regulatory Material (such as Technical Regulations)

    • Provides guidance to Regions & Members to prepare their IPs

  • Regional Implementation Plan(s) (R-WIP):

    • Responding to WIP

    • Includes Regional priorities

    • Provides further guidance to Members

  • National Implementation Plan(s) (N-WIP):

    • Respond to WIP & R-WIP

    • Includes national priorities

    • Plan to implement improved functionalities of the existing observing systems based on practices described in the WMO Regulatory Material

  • Agents for implementation:

    • WIP = TCs (in collaboration with RAs and Members)

    • R-WIP = RAs (in collaboration with TCs and Members)

    • N-WIP = Members (in collaboration with RAs and TCs)

What is wigos

What is WIGOS?

An over-arching framework for the coordination and evolution of WMO observing systems and the contributions of WMO to co-sponsored observing systems.

A WMO priority

WIGOS is not:

  • Replacing or taking-over the existing observing systems, which will continue to be 'owned' and operated by a diverse array of organizations, entities and, importantly, Members.


Wigos vision

WIGOS Vision

Coordinated, comprehensive, reliable and trusted observations for WMO

Addressing, in a cost-effective and sustained manner, the evolving observing requirements of Members in delivering their weather, climate, water and related environmental services.

Enhanced coordination of WMO observing systems with those of partner organizations for the benefit of society.

WIGOS will build on the WWW 'role model'


To achieve the wigos vision

To achieve the WIGOS Vision….

WIGOS will implement a framework for enabling the integration, interoperability, optimized evolution and best-practice operation for

  • WMO observing systems, and

  • WMO’s contribution to co-sponsored systems.

    WIGOS will use and exploit the WMO Information System (WIS)

  • To allow continuous and reliable access to an expanded set of environmental data and products, and associated metadata


What do we mean by integration

What do we mean by integration?

Composite systems

'Network of networks’

Integration through:

Supporting diverse user needs

Systems designed for efficiency & effectiveness

NWP data assimilation

Partnership & collaboration

End-to-end service model

Data policy, access and exchange

Coordinated network operation & maintenance

Practices and procedures

Integration is NOT one-size-fits-all


What do we mean by interoperability

What do we mean by interoperability?

Ability to access, combine or compare observations from one source or systemwith those from another

  • To achieve this, need:

    • Metadata

    • Standards

    • Regulatory material

      Interoperability is key to turning observations into effective data, products and services that meet real user needs

Wigos will

WIGOS will…

Result in increased information flow and knowledge, improved efficiency and enhanced services across all WMO Programmes.

Support and sustain the delivery of the other four priorities, especially:

  • Global Framework for Climate Services

  • Disaster Risk Reduction

  • Capacity Development

    Support Members and deliver benefits at global, regional and national levels, but requires commitment at all those levels

  • Numerical modelling and data assimilation

  • Greater capacity to access and use observations in decision making

    Response to climate and natural disasters

  • Multi-sector, multi-hazard and multi-disciplinary

    Ongoing resource pressures and accountability

In conclusion

In conclusion…

At its simplest, the WIGOS framework is about:

  • Documenting and implementing best practice in making and sharing observations

  • Coordination and collaboration for efficiency and effectiveness

  • Integration and interoperability in all senses

  • Delivering observations that meet user needs in a way they can use them

  • Empowering WMO and especially NMHSs

    • to assume a national leadership role and

    • to better serve their communities
