World Meteorological Organization (WMO) WMO Presented by Timo Pröscholdt CPDB Portal Project Manager Country Profile Database DRA/OBS portal startup initiative
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal2 Goals Develop a prototype CPDB portal by the end of 2011 Include information from OBS and DRA contributions, and PUB 5
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal3 Method Build on existing structures Add only new components (the portal) Avoid building complex systems that do everything Build a modular system instead Make data readily available Highly consultative rapid development & implementation
Portal CBS DB PUB5 Vol A Document Search JCOMM contacts DB Questionnaire SMM Database Webservice System CIMO RadarDB RBSN / RBCN / Anton
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal5 Capabilities Lists information from selected databases on a WMO Member basis Databases can also be browsed directly Selected information can be updated in the portal Information can come from internal and external databases Information from different DBs can be combined Currently supports: PUB5,Vol A, CBS, CIMO, Weather Radar, SMM, VCP, FELLMAN
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal6 Feedback Access to information / authentification Information you would like to see Use cases for portal usage Which info on WMO Websites, which one in the portal?
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal7 Feedback from participants Prototype available as of Jan 2012, operational version sometime after EC 64, 2012. Information should be consistent and accurate as possible. Fix country code discrepancies in PUB5, eg., BCT. Add Regional info at some stage (eg., Regional Climate centres such as ACMAD, link websites) Start with publicly available data for prototype, and establish procedure for adding new sources to basic structure. Possible restricted sections. Add financial figures at some level.
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal8 Feedback from participants Show the information on regional/national development projects. Show the results of surveys. Cautions to progress in an orderly fashion. Make online prototype portal available to WMO Members at large for review. Distinguish between info that goes into the portal and info that portal can be linked to.
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal9 Outlook Main scope of the portal is to provide information from key databases, but Portal can be used to let WMO Members manage information online The data centralisation done for the portal makes it possible to use the data elsewhere (M&E)
12 Dec 2011CPDB Portal10 Action! Will now demonstrate the portal Feel free to have a closer look yourself at http://www.wmo-sat.info/~wisuser/cpdb/
