Welcome to the MetOceanDWG web


The Meteorological Domain Working Group (Meteo DWG) is a domain working group in the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). This is not a group that directly revises OGC standards, but rather enables collaboration and communication between groups with meteorological interests. The Meteo DWG maintains a list of topics of interest to the met community for discussion, defining feedback to OGC Standards Working Groups (SWG), and performing interoperability experiments. The Meteo DWG is intended to be a public forum for communication, and both the email list and this wiki are open to interested parties.

Please see the current Meteo DWG Charter for further details.

Topics of Interest

The Meteo DWG is gathering topics of interest to the community. Some feedbacks are available from the early implementations of the OGC standards for meteorological products.They enhance several issues that are caracteristic from the domain and require some best practices recommendations to insure interoperability between the different implementations. Some of these issues are common to several standards :

Other can be specific to one of the standards :

Questionnaire on the use of WMS in meteorology and inter operability experiments

The Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) recently established a Meteorology Domain Working Group (and a Hydrology Domain WG) to provide a focus for the application of the OGC standards and profiles to meteorology. The OGC is also pursuing a Memorandum of Understanding with WMO to allow mutual representation of experts at their respective meetings.

The initial plan of the Meteo DWG is to perform Interoperability Experiments with the OGC Web Mapping Services (WMS) standard between June and December 2009, as recommended at the OGC - ECMWF workshop in November 2008. The intent is to produce an agreed OGC WMS profile for meteorology, or possible changes to the WMS standard. Such a profile should help improve global inter-operability with the wider geospatial community as well as "intra-operability" within the meteorological community. This should also help reduce the cost of implementing operational and research systems. We would like you to take a few minutes to fill in the questionnaire, so that the MDWG can measure the interest in, and identify any volunteers for, these Inter-operability Experiments.

Please expand upon your answers if you would like to supply more information. wink

The initial results from the questionnaire :
  • have been presented at the European Working Group on Operational [Meteorological] Workstations (EGOWS) 2009 Conference beginning of June 2009 in the Netherlands.
  • will be presented the OGC Technical Conference in Boston in the USA. thumbs up
