WIS 2.0 Demonstration Projects Workshop

WIS 2.0 demonstration projects are used to illustrate, evolve, validate and/or refine the concepts, solutions, and implementation approach of WIS 2.0 – and also to demonstrate some of the key benefits that WIS 2.0 will bring to the WMO community.

The demonstration projects shall involve international cooperation between several WMO Members, and each project will demonstrate at least two of the WIS 2.0 principles providing the technical framework.

Objectives

  • Document the status of the projects and their plan

  • Clarify the implementation of the WIS 2.0 Principles in the project

  • Gather architecture, technical specifications, and specifications of the project with the aim to compare them with WIS 2.0 technical specifications and identify gaps and improvements

  • Provide guidance resulting from the development and implementation of the project in the following areas:

    • Real-time data exchange

    • Data discovery, catalogue, and metadata standards

    • Data standards

    • WIS Centers roles
