GEONETCast System Overview • Worldwide information dissemination system by which satellite and in situ data, products and services are transmitted to users through commercial communications satellites. • Receiving stations use low-cost, off the shelf DVB-S broadcast technology – Receive station cost ~ $2,000 - $3,000. • Information includes climate, weather, agriculture, air quality, disasters, and more, in support of GEOSS Societal Benefit Areas. • No internet connection required by users • No format restriction for providers or users.
GEONETCast Partners GEONETCast is a system uniting regional data dissemination systems: EUMETCast (EUMETSAT): Europe, Africa, and theAmericas FengYunCast (Chinese Meteorological Administration): Asia and parts of Pacific GEONETCast Americas (NOAA): North, Central and South America
GEONETCast Americas • NOAA-maintained portion of global GEONETCast system. • Operational in 2008 • DVB-S Standard on C-Band, bandwidth 2mb/sec. • Broadcasting over North, Central and South American and Caribbean. • Provides derived products (non L1 satellite data, warnings, alerts, geolocated imagery, etc) in 9 GEO Societal benefit areas: • Disasters - Weather • Health - Ecosystems • Energy - Agriculture • Climate - Biodiversity • Water
Publishing products to GEONETCast Connect to the broadcast server and upload files through FTP, either automatically or interactively. File transfers can be easily automated for routinely scheduled earth observation products. Products created on ad-hoc basis (such as emergency response maps and documents) can be uploaded at any time.
At the Receiving Station: Files from selected files are downloaded inmediately to the designated folder. User takes the files and uses them on his/her application
Example: Individual files received through GEONETCast are turned into an animation at the receiving station using additional tools. E.g.:c:\>gifsicle -l *.gif > animacion.gif
Using client software (like SERVIR Viz, Google Earth or ARC GIS) information downloaded from GEONETCast can be combined with other data sources for further analysis
GEONETCast User Interface • Software installed on the receiving workstation: • User friendly • Web based • Allows user to activate or deactivate “channels” as wished • Supports automation of tasks
GEONETCast and Pacific Coverage • Current broadcast areas do not cover all of Pacific Region • GEONETCast Americas covers continental North, Central and S America, contract option for additional beam to HI and AK • China Meteorological Administration (CMA) provides coverage through Asia and parts of Southwestern Pacific • Funding within NESDIS for expansion of GEONETCast Americas beyond current capability not foreseen. • Initial discussions with regional actors on potential expansion scenarios are underway
GNC Expansion into Pacific • Questions for Discussion: • Regional user requirements • Operations • Products • Capabilities • New broadcast node or extension of current regional broadcast (GNC-A or FENGYUNCast) • Funding, infrastructure, programmatic support. • Initial baseline estimates of expanding current broadcast capability to offer limited add’l Pacific coverage -
