1 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 Product Visualisation & Analysis Tool EUMETSAT presentation to EGOWS 2013 Richard Bosworth

2 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 EUMETSAT EUMETSAT was formed in 1986 with the objective to provide, from space, information that can be used in weather forecasting and climate applications. EUMETSAT is an intergovernmental organisation, formed to service the Member and Cooperating States which fund our activities. Much more at Much, much more at Slide: 2

3 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 EUMETSAT spacecraft Geostationary: METEOSAT (7, 8, 9 & 10) Low Earth Orbit: METOP (A & B) Slide: 3

4 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 Previously, from EGOWS 2003 EUMETSAT operates meteorological satellites for its member states In addition to image data, level 2 geophysical products are produced Products are derived from image data and forecast data Products are validated by comparison with observations from balloons, ships, aircraft Graphics workstation is used to display all these data, allowing the analysis of the images and products by meteorologists MWS - Original system in MTP ground segment, fixed set of products, fixed layout for each product PQM - Part of MSG ground segment, uses a data dictionary, and visualization templates to enable analysis of many products in different ways, without software changes PQM can handle data in internal formats and in BUFR Slide: 4

5 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 Problems with legacy visualisation tools COTS or hardware specific implementations Not easy to implement new features or products Not able to handle newer formats (GRIB2, netCDF, HDF, etc) Flexibility implemented only for certain modes of usability Result: Tools that cannot be easily enhanced Users creating their own visualisation tools Therefore, a need to find a replacement Slide: 5

6 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 The hunt for a replacement Visited EGOWS in 2003, 2004, 2007, 2009 & 2013 EGOWS provides a unique opportunity to see what is available But, EUMETSAT have a unique set of requirements: Internal formats unknown to third parties Encoded formats specific to a small community Specific display operations required by EUMETSAT users A focus on product content display Specific processes for EUMETSAT to procure goods Slide: 6

7 EUM/SEP/VWG/13/ Issue 1 21/05/2013 Decision to procure a new tool Be based on a commodity Intel/Linux platform Be based (as much as possible) on existing tools & COTS Use no hardware acceleration features Be as flexible as possible in design, implementation & usability Be a platform that can be easily enhanced for: new products, new encoding formats, new visualisation types, new projections Result: Product Visualisation & Analysis Tool (PVA) Developed for EUMETSAT by ask - Innovative Visualisierungslösungen GmbH Slide: 7
