  2. Early efforts for XML format • Severe weather watches/warnings/advisories made available via Internet in RSS – 2003/2004 • Very popular with users • RSS feeds by state, county, and aggregated national feeds • Updated every 2 to 3 minutes

  3. CAP 1.0 • Common Alerting Protocol 1.0 offered significant improvements over RSS • CAP format begun as experimental format 2004/2005 • Public coments accepted on format through 2007 • CAP 1.0 continues as experimental service

  4. HazCollect • HazCollect Project utilizes NOAA/NWS infrastrcuture to disseminate hazardous situation messages from local emergency management offcials • NWS continues to work with HazCollect project to aggregate CAP messages into NWS datastream • Internet page display of warnings as well as transmission over local NOAA Weather Radio transmitters

  5. Migration to CAP 1.1 • CAP 1.1 features more detailed pre-parsing of NWS products than previously available and also feature ATOM based index feeds. • Posted as experimental service mid-2008 • Public comments accepted through Decembr 1, 2008 • Messages offered in CAP, Atom, and RSS formats • Feeds make use of the Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) to describe how files encoded in the XML standard are to be formatted or transformed for display by your web browser. • It is expected these CAP 1.1 feeds will replace the current CAP 1.0 feeds by December 2009.
