2 Outcome The importance of Environmental Information for South America The INPE/CPTEC Weather and Environmental Satellite ProductsData Integration : The weather radar exampleThe Geographical Information System for Environmental ApplicationsThe Virtual Lab for TrainingThe RARS (Regional ATOVS Retransmission System)The GEONETCast applications for and by Developing Countries

16 What is necessary to the information be useful and reach the stakeholders and end - users Data Integration - same format and measurements proceduresHave information with quality, without latency and a reliable flux of data (operational)Software based in GIS – friendly use and open sourceTraining, Data Utilization and Support – low cost – Teletraining
17 Centro de Previsão de Tempo e Estudos Climáticos Weather Forecast and Climate Studies Centre CPTEC The amount of daily data produced, together with environmental, social, economical and other information require advanced techniques to manipulate and make them available to users.A web based GIS is the ideal tool to facilitate handling information by users
24 R A R S – South America . Regional ATOVS Retransmission System Main Goal – Decrease latency time for data assimilation in numerical weather prediction modelsData Integration - Effort.
25 Regional RequestsRun the simplified AAPP SOFTWARE at each site for each NOAA satellite passagePrepare the NOAA ATOVS 1C data and send to regional centerRegional Center make available in near real time the ATOVS level 1C in BuFr format to all user by DVB, Internet or GTS

27 Project Proposal - DevCoCast GEONETCast applications for and by Developing Countries. The proposed DevCoCast project will test the GEONETCast concept byBroadcast South-American local data to other regions in South-America. -SAMERICastBroadcast African local data to other regions in Africa - AFRICastBroadcasting the VGT4AFRICA data to South America - VGT4SAMERICABroadcasting the YEOS data to ASIA - YEOSCastBroadcasting the AFRICA-GOOS data to Africa - ChloroCastGeert Borstlap VITO - Flemish Institute for Technological Research TAP - Centre for Remote Sensing and Atmospheric Processes
29 ConclusionThere is a broad range of societal benefits by using Environmental InformationThe information is available to be used.There is capacity building structure available to help improving the societal benefitsIs very difficult to integrate the information available inside the same country or between different countriesThe users don't know how to use the information.The data dissemination system need to be improve and broadly used.The ambition is to embed the enviromental data in systematic local and national planning and decision making processes
