okc micronet current status
OKC Micronet - Current Status
  • Network of 40 stations (4 Mesonet Sites, 36 Traffic Signal Sites.
  • 1-minute Data Collection – Real-time and archive quality assurance (QA).
  • 5 years of effort to secure funding, 2 years of design and testing.
  • True collaboration with Oklahoma City.
  • All sites are deployed and the network is operating in a test mode prior to official, public commissioning in the upcoming months.

okc micronet lessons learned
OKC Micronet – Lessons Learned
  • Technology and Infrastructure are very different from rural areas (power, communications, station siting).
  • K.I.S.S. – Standardize as much as possible.
  • Political support is important, but not as critical as one might think.
  • A plan for data products is very important – needs to be relevant to those supporting the efforts (especially city departments).
general network thoughts
General Network Thoughts
  • It is better to design and easier to implement a network that is simple/basic/robust than one that involves many complicated facets/components.
  • Quality Assurance (QA) is better than Quality Control (QC).
  • Sensors and hardware are relatively inexpensive compared to the long-term needs of operating a permanent, real-time network – long term support, calibration, and maintenance are critical to network survival and data quality.
  • A plan for data products is very important – needs to be relevant to those supporting the efforts.
the case for okc as an urban testbed
The Case for OKC as an Urban Testbed
  • OKC Micronet
  • Oklahoma Mesonet
  • 17 Research Radar systems (NEXRAD, Phased Array, Polarized, Mobile, X-Band, C-Band)
  • A historical urban dataset – JU2003
  • Rapidly growing urban area (9.8% last year)
  • Local geography
  • Other observational capabilities (ARM, NOAA profilers, etc.)
