4th Workshop on the use of GIS/OGC standards in meteorology



 
 

The 4th Workshop on the use of GIS/OGC standards in meteorology was held from 4 to 6 March 2013.


Background information

ECMWF, the UK Met Office, Météo France and Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) are jointly organising a dedicated 4th workshop on the use of GIS/OGC standards in meteorology. This will be held at ECMWF on 4 - 6 March 2013.

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) is very active in developing standards that cater for emerging technologies and that allow interoperability between communities that previously were not able to easily communicate. Embracing these standards will allow the meteorological community to reach out to a wider audience, and keep up with the ever changing landscape of Internet-based services.

The main outcome of the first of these workshops (held at ECMWF in 2008) was the establishment in 2009 of a Memorandum of Understanding between the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and the OGC, and the creation of the OGC Met Ocean Domain Working Group (DWG).

In 2010 and 2011, alignment of WMO, OGC and Aviation conceptual modelling activities took place.

Recently, the MetOcean DWG has issued a 'best practice' document for the use of Web Map Services (WMS) in meteorology, encompassing Time and Elevation.

The aim of this 4th workshop is to provide a new roadmap for the Met Ocean DWG with a focus on standards that have not yet been covered by the working group, such as Web Coverage Services (WCS), Sensor Observation Service (SOS), Sensor Web Enablement (SWE), Styled Layer Descriptor (SLD), Web Processing Service (WPS) and any other standards that may be relevant for the meteorological community.

Speakers are invited to share their plans and/or experiences in implementing OGC standards in their organisation. Vendors are invited to present their technical solutions.

It is envisaged that the workshop will consist of a limited number of presentations from invited speakers, plus a series of 15 minute contributions. There will be open discussion, working groups and plenary sessions.
