IGDDS goal and scope
The goal of the WMO Integrated Global Data Dissemination Service (IGDDS) project is to ensure the definition and operational implementation of an efficient circulation scheme of space-based observation data and products meeting the needs of WMO programmes, in the context of the WMO Information System (WIS).
IGDDS addresses different functions of the data circulation scheme:
The baseline for IGDDS is a collection of regional dissemination components linked in a global network for inter-regional data exchange. Each regional component will include a Data Collection and Product Centre (DCPC) as defined in WIS and will ensure routine dissemination by various means including a satellite-based Digital Video Broadcast (DVB-S) service covering its region. (Examples of such DVB-S systems are: EUMETCAST, FengYunCast, MITRA, NOAAPORT.)
