5 5 Iterative Feedback Process “Build a little / Test a little” 5 Feedback Incorporated into next iteration Demo Sessions Prototype User

6 6 Social Science Partner Research Social Science Woven into Meteorology (SSWIM) SSWIM brought on board 2009 Preliminary Results from Current Research shared at AMS 2011 Today, provide a brief overview of the social science component and share several practical applications for the Hazard Services prototype design. Jen Spinney, Researcher carrying out social science component of project

7 7 Funding and Resources National Weather Service – OS&T (Office of Science and Technology) GSD DDF (Global Systems Division Discretionary Director) and Base Funds CWB (Central Weather Bureau) Taiwan COMET – University of Southern Florida Southern Region – NWSWarn MDL personnel

8 8 Hazard Services Project Portal :

9 9 Purpose -- Integrate Hazard Tools Phase 1 9 WARNGEN (< 1 hour) GHG (Hours-Days) RiverPro (Days) Hazard Services

10 10 Purpose -- Integrate Hazard Tools Phase 2 10 WARNGEN (< 1 hour) GHG (Hours-Days) RiverPro (Days) Hazard Services NMAP (National)

11 11 Purpose -- Two-way Communication Phase 3 11 AWIPS II CAVE -- Forecasters Web -- Partners: EM's, Broadcasters Spotters, Publics IHIS serves as a vehicle for social science (RENCI / SSWIM) research into Partner Requirements to be realized by NWS National “Cloud” Hazards Impacts

12 12 Project History 2004 OSIP Project / Next Generation Warning Tool team – Telecons for Concept and Requirements discussions 2008 Workshop Norman OK, 130 attendees – 50% NWS / 50% partners (FEMA, EM’s, etc.) 2009 Integrated Hazard Information Services Workshop hosted by GSD, 70 attendees – Forecasters / partners / developers / social scientists – Initial User Interface designed for prototyping 2010 Prototyping – Web-based short-fused tornado warning – Established basic user interface through rapid forecaster feedback – Looking ahead to two-way communication

13 13 Project History 2011 Prototype work – AWIPS II CAVE Prototypes – short-fused, long- fused, hydro – Utilization of PGEN drawing tools – GIS data – hospitals, Iris spotter reports, Census – Design and partial development for “Live Data” – Web-based prototype (prior to May) – Attended IWT Workshop – Hydro/Partners 2011 Workshops – Attended IWT Workshop – Hydro/Partners – Hazard Services Workshop II (Sept) – Engaged user community and began defining IOC requirements









22 22 Short-fused Tornado Warning

23 23 Short-fused Tornado Warning

24 24 Long-fused Winter Storm Warning

25 25 Long-fused Winter Storm Warning

26 April 2002 Integrated Hazard Information Services Moving from Product-Centric to Information-Centric Hazard Information Still need to store both legacy VTEC (Valid Time Event Code) product-centric information along with “atomic” information-centric information.

27 April 2002 27 Hazard Creation : Grids, Polygons, Points, Paths (Drawn or Calculated) -> Product Generation SBN National Distributed Database Atomic Hazard Information VTEC Information Hazard Services – Data Storage Information Centric Product Centric

28 28 Next Steps and Future Work

29 29 Summary of Prototyping Work – Prototyping has “Touched on” ~60% of requirements Provided a good launching point for gathering functional requirements and IOC design Yet only covers ~20% of the functionality

30 30 Future Work -- Integrated GSD / RTS team for Phase 1 production development -- Goals: OSIP Gate 3 and IOC -- Development Tasks – Data Transformation Framework for algorithms such as Recommenders and Text Products – Database Solution – working with Iris team on storage formats, security, authentication – User Interface and Forecast Process – common GUI for efficient and accurate hazard generation

31 Common Data Access Common Tools – iTools, Recommenders, Text Products Collaboration Real-time Data Sharing National Data “Cloud” Hazard Services across perspectives A possible step toward integrating AWIPS Applications
