Data Access and Use

New satellite systems will generate increasing amounts of advanced measurements, but it remains a major challenge to ensure that improved data and products are actually available, and can be utilized by more users in all regions.

One of the 4 main components of the WMO Space Programme is thus to improve the utilization of the space-based capabilities of the Global Observing System (GOS) with emphasis on utilization of satellite data and services in developing countries

This section is comprised of the following pages:

  • Formats and Standards - Explains the different formats used for dissemination and processing of Satellite Data
  • From data to products - Explains the different levels of data processing and product generation, as well as the main categories of satellite products
  • Product Portal - Gives direct links to an array of different satellite products
  • Data&Product Dissemination - Explains the different means of disseminating Satellite data & products
  • SCOPE-CM - Initiative to ensure sustained and continous provision of Satellite Data related to the Essential Climate Variables (ECVs) in response to GCOS requirements
  • RARS and IGDDS projects - To ensure efficient delivery of data and products to a global user community
