overview of what s happening in nws
Overview of What’s Happening in NWS
  • Over 300 users of GIS in NWS
    • Representing all classes of GIS
      • Desktop, Server, and Mobile
    • Collaborate via email listserve
    • Regional representatives meet monthly via telecon
  • GIS formatted data (shapefiles) used as map backgrounds for AWIPS
  • Prototypes for server and mobile applications
  • National project to set-up governance & coordination of national projects (OSIP 06-003)
desktop gis
Desktop GIS
  • Displays & analyzes geo-spatial data from local/network drives and/or web services
  • Current Desktop Activities
    • Create/maintain AWIPS map backgrounds
    • Determine current and proposed WSR88D, ARSR and TDWR coverages
    • Graphics for presentations including Congressional briefings
    • Forecast verification studies
    • Manipulating variables (scaling & projecting) for use in statistical guidance development
server gis
Server GIS
  • Provides users with data which can be:
    • Displayed & or queried in a web portal
    • Downloaded and ingested into client’s GIS
    • Used for custom Decision Support applications
  • “Web Services” are the predominate request for weather data by customers & partners visiting NOAA booths at technical conferences
  • Current/Planned Server Activities
    • WMS Service as backend will be used to deliver RIDGE data in version II
    • NDFD prototype
