Open Data Week @ECMWF

Workshop on improving the socio-economic impact of NWP data

28 February - 1 March

Accessibility, ease of use and data policy impact upon the realised value of NWP forecast data, as shown in recent socio-economic impact studies. The workshop provided a forum to discuss the challenges of disseminating meteorological data into the future and how ECMWF and NMSs can ensure that the economic value of weather information can continue to be realised by the private market. The workshop discussed the user needs, the requirement to provide access to fast-growing, large data sets and the available solutions. What are the challenges and costs of ingesting this information? What future opportunities and applications do users foresee for ECMWF forecast data?

The workshop was aimed at policy makers and professionals interested in the evolution of the meteorological industries.

16th Workshop on Meteorological Operational Systems (MOS)

1-3 March

Providing increasingly large and complex data sets, for scientists and industry to exploit, challenges traditional data centres to look at new technologies and work practices. This goes beyond the mere provision of data but also requires strategies for efficient processing and fast visualisation. Cloud based solutions and moving processing/visualisation to where data is stored are only some possible solutions.

The workshop on Meteorological Operational Systems (MOS) is biennially organised by ECMWF and reviews current and future developments of operational systems at ECMWF and National Weather Services. In 2017, the workshop focussed on how (open) data can be best brought to users. The workshop aimed to review current pull services, such as standardised web services (OGC, INSPIRE) and push services, such as product generation and dissemination. Participants were able to see the state-of-the-art of data service provision and were able to network with key players in this community. The workshop included sessions on operational visualisation systems and the traditional exhibition.
