  Overview of What’s Happening in
               NWS
► Over    300 users of GIS in NWS
   Representing all classes of GIS
        ► Desktop,   Server, and Mobile
   Collaborate via email listserve
   Regional representatives meet monthly via telecon
► GIS formatted data (shapefiles) used as map
  backgrounds for AWIPS
► Prototypes for server and mobile applications
► National project to set-up governance &
  coordination of national projects (OSIP 06-003)
                  Desktop GIS
► Displays & analyzes geo-spatial data from
  local/network drives and/or web services
► Current Desktop Activities
   Create/maintain AWIPS map backgrounds
   Determine current and proposed WSR88D, ARSR and
    TDWR coverages
   Graphics for presentations including Congressional
    briefings
   Forecast verification studies
   Manipulating variables (scaling & projecting) for use in
    statistical guidance development
                   Server GIS
► Provides   users with data which can be:
   Displayed & or queried in a web portal
   Downloaded and ingested into client’s GIS
   Used for custom Decision Support applications
► “Web Services” are the predominate request for
  weather data by customers & partners visiting
  NOAA booths at technical conferences
► Current/Planned Server Activities
   WMS Service as backend will be used to deliver RIDGE
    data in version II
   NDFD prototype
