1 - 1 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water RA-VI WIS Implementation Plan WMO RA VI Workshop on establishing WIS-DCPC/ WIGOS Marine Meteorological Centre Zagreb May 2012 Geerd-R-Hoffmann (Chair, RA-VI Task Team on WIS development and implementation) WMO

2 - 2 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 Contents What is WIS? Why do we need an implementation plan for RA-VI? What is the current status of RA-VI with regard to WIS? What has to be done to use WIS features? Which problems may arise when trying to connect to WIS? How is the monitoring of the plan organised? Which timeframe is being envisaged? Which actions are required when and by whom?

3 - 3 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 WMO Information System (WIS) In 2003, the World Meteorological Congress stated that an overarching approach for solving the data management problems for all WMO and related international programmes was required: a single coordinated global infrastructure, the WMO Information System (WIS). –WIS would be used for the collection and sharing of information for all WMO and related international programmes. –WIS would provide a flexible and extensible structure that would allow the participating centres to enhance their capabilities as their national and international responsibilities grow. –Implementation of WIS should build upon the most successful components of existing WMO information systems in an evolutionary process. –WIS development should pay special attention to a smooth and coordinated transition. –The basis for the core communication network should be the communication links used within the World Weather Watch (WWW) for the high priority real-time data. –WIS should utilise international industry standards for protocols, hardware and software.

4 - 4 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 WIS services WIS provides an integrated approach suitable for all WMO Programmes to meet the requirements of: Routine collection and automated dissemination of observed data and products (“push”); Timely delivery of data and products (appropriate to requirements); Ad-hoc requests for data and products (“pull”). Data discovery service for all data stored by any WMO programme regardless of location. A short introduction to WIS can be found in “WIS in a Nutshell”, initiated by the RA-VI Task Team on WIS. (http://www.wmo.int/pages/prog/www/WIS/wiswiki/tiki-index.php?page=wis-in-a-nutshell#WIS_in_a_Nutshell)

5 - 5 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 WIS users WMO programmes who will benefit from the services offered by WIS for the implementation of their data exchange tasks. NMHS’s who will be able to interactively alter their operational data provisions Individual users, either a person or an institution, who will be the main beneficiary of WIS, because WIS will provide a single entry point for any data request, be it on a routine basis by dissemination of certain user defined information sets or on an ad-hoc basis for a special data set.. GEOSS because WIS could also form the base for its information systems.

6 - 6 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 WIS concept National Centres (NC) Global Information System Centres (GISC) Data Collection or Production Centres (DCPC) Data communication network The names of these virtual centres describe their functionality, not the actual organisational entities. There may be organisations, such as NMHSs, which combine all three virtual centres within one facility. Virtual structure

7 - 7 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 National Centre (NC) Collect national observations “Push” data intended for global dissemination to the associated GISC “Push” data intended for regional or specialised distribution to the associated DCPC Collect, generate and disseminate products for national use. Participate in monitoring the performance of the system Authorize their national users to access WIS, as appropriate

8 - 8 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 Global Information System Centre (GISC) Receive observational data and products that are intended for global exchange from NCs and DCPCs within their area of responsibility Exchange information intended for global dissemination with other GISCs Disseminate, within its area of responsibility, the entire set of data and products agreed by WMO for routine global exchange Hold the entire set of data and products agreed by WMO for routine global exchange for at least 24 hours and make it available via WMO request/reply (”Pull”) mechanisms Maintain, in accordance to the WMO standards, a catalogue of all data and products for global exchange and provide access to this catalogue to locate the relevant centre intended for global exchange. Coordinate the communication network within their area of responsibility X X X X X X X X X X X X X X X

9 - 9 - World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 Data Collection or Production Centre (DCPC) Receive information intended for dissemination to NCs within its area of responsibility (i.e. regional collection) Collect programme-specific data and products Produce regional or specialized data and products “Push” information intended for global exchange to their associated GISC Disseminate information intended for regional exchange Support access to their products via request/reply (”Pull”) mechanism Maintain data and product catalogues in a WMO-agreed standard format and facilitate access to this catalogue

10 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 Data communication network The data communication network should: be based on an agreed technology available to the participating centres be capable of handling the data volumes include satellite communication channels, terrestrial links and managed data network services, and use of Internet handle the agreed transmission protocols build on the GTS, including its satellite-based elements and the IMTN, for real-time data exchange

11 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Area Meteorological Data Communication Networks (AMDCNs) –Incorporate GTS infrastructure –May involve single, partial or multiple Regional Meteorological Data Communication Networks Network topology still varies across the globe –AMDCNs don’t automatically fix problems with RMDCNs, but do provide a GISC focal point to address problems.

16 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 WIS metadata WIS metadata describes WMO data and products and is essential for discovery Metadata is maintained by NCs and DCPCs GISCs already synchronize catalogue information The figure shows an example status of the catalogue synchronization

17 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water 17 December 2014 Rôle of WIS for WMO programmes WIS concerns only telecommunication and data management functions of the WMO Programmes. Programmes will benefit from the services offered by WIS for the implementation of their data exchange tasks. Provision of data and products on the basis of request/reply services will be the most significant addition. Supporting various communication protocols for data transmission and by making use of off-the-shelf technologies of a lower cost, WIS should allow least developed Members to actively participate in the WMO Programmes, specifically the WWW.

18 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Additional services for Members For all users: –Metadata –Discovery and retrieval For NMHS‘s: –Access to all data routinely disseminated, independent of location –Option to modify distribution list interactively –Insert new data for routine dissemination without delay –Act as national focal point for all users of WIS –Highlight ownership of data through WIS metadata 17 December 2014

19 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Letter of WMO dated 10 February December 2014 Following Resolution 51 of the Sixteenth World Meteorotogical Congress (Designation of Centres of the WMO Information System), the implementation of the first three operational GISCs by China, Germany and Japan and the completion of the Improved Main Telecommunication Network (IMTN) initiative, I am pleased to advise that the WMO Information System (WIS) is now operational.

20 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water WIS centres endorsed WMO Member/OrgGISCDCPCNC China11- France16- Germany110- Japan18- UK of Great Britain and Northern Ireland 18- ECMWF-1- EUMETSAT-1- HongKong, China-1- Norway December 2014 It should be noted that so far no NC’s have been endorsed world-wide. Therefore, it was felt necessary to create a WIS implementation plan, starting with RA-VI.

21 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Background for implementation plan Decision by Regional Association VI (Europe), Fifteenth session, September 2009 Action by Working Group on Technology Development and Implementation (WG-TDI), First Meeting, DWD, Offenbach, Germany, 27 – 28 October 2010 Support at WMO RA VI Workshop on the implementation of WIS, Sofia, Bulgaria, 1 – 3 November 2011 Statement by WG-TDI during its second meeting at Météo- France, Paris, December 2011 that the task for developing a detailed RA VI WIS Implementation Plan should be given high priority with the goal that the implementation would be completed by the next session of RA VI in September December 2014

33 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Exemplary WIS Implementation Plan for NMHS with RMDCN Connection in RA-VI 1.Bring about an internal decision to join WIS in RA-VI. 2.Choose a staff member to become the WIS Focal point. The person should be knowledgeable about the current GTS transmission. 3.Check the communication network connectivity, in particular the bandwidth to the current RTH and the Internet access. 4.Check the traffic pattern for the GTS data and ensure that the bandwidth is sufficient to send and receive all data without undue delays. If this is not the case, either plan an increase in bandwidth or stay with GTS data transmissions. 5.Determine which GISC in the region should become the primary GISC and communicate with the chosen GISC to gain its approval. 6.Inform WMO by letter from the PR about the decision to become an NC, the choice of the primary GISC and the nomination of the WIS Focal point. 7.Set up a communication link to the primary GISC via RMDC and create an user account at the GISC for administrative matters via Internet. 8.Decide whether the metadata editor should be supported locally or remotely by the GISC. In view of this decision, set up the necessary software environment: either by installing the editor on a local server or by setting-up an Internet connection to the GISC for the editing. 9.Train a staff member and a back-up in the WMO metadata Profile by sending them to training courses organised by WMO or the GISC. It is also possible to ask for local support via the WMO Jumpstart Offer. 10.Take over responsibility for the metadata records describing the data submitted by the NMHS and modify if necessary the initial metadata records provided by Météo France. 11.Start using the WIS functionality for sending and receiving data with their appropriate metadata descriptions. 12.Join the user group of the GISC by attending meetings and other organised events. 13.Support the monitoring of the regional WIS by regularly updating the country’s records in the Country Data Base including availability of service, traffic figures, errors and other comments. The WMO WIS Focal point may contact the local WIS Focal point for clarifications and vice versa. 17 December 2014

34 World Meteorological Organization Working together in weather, climate and water Exemplary WIS Implementation Plan for DCPC in RA-VI 17 December Bring about an internal decision of the organisation to join WIS in RA-VI as a DCPC. 2.Choose a staff member to become the WIS Focal point. The person should be knowledgeable about the GTS transmissions and the WMO Metadata Core Profile. 3.Gain the support of a WMO Program for the special data to be made available as a DCPC. In case of a current RTH who wishes to become a DCPC, the NC’s to be connected to the new DCPC for data collection and distribution services should be contacted for support, expressed by the relevant PR’s. 4.Determine which GISC in the region should become the primary GISC and communicate with the chosen GISC to gain its approval. 5.Check the communication network connectivity, in particular the bandwidth to the chosen GISC and the Internet access. 6.Check the planned traffic pattern for the data and the Internet interactive load, assuming full DCPC operations. Ensure that the bandwidth is sufficient to send and receive all data without undue delays. If this were not the case, make sure that an upgrade of the communication network is planned prior to starting operations as a DCPC. 7.In accordance with the mandatory services to be provided by a DCPC as described in the Manual on WIS (WMO-No. 1060), select the necessary special software and install it locally. Make sure that it passes all the tests for DCPC’s which have been published by WMO. 8.Inform WMO, in particular CBS, by letter from the Director of the Organisation about the wish to become a DCPC, the supporting WMO Program, the choice of the primary GISC and the nomination of the WIS Focal point. 9.In accordance with the WIS Manual, collaborate with the relevant CBS ET’s to pass all the necessary tests for a DCPC. 10.Once the tests have been passed successfully and the centre has been endorsed by WMO Congress / EC, set up operations as a DCPC. 11.Join the user group of the GISC by attending meetings and other organised events. 12.Support the monitoring of the regional WIS by regularly updating the organisation’s records in the Country Data Base including availability of service, traffic figures, errors and other comments. The WMO RA-VI WIS Focal point may contact the local WIS Focal point for clarifications and vice versa.
