Program: PC-setup
Member: United States of America Centre: NWS/NCEP
Description: PC-SETUP is a companion program for PCGRIDDS. This data collection program receives, filters, and stores gridded binary data (GRIB) disseminated via the World Area Forecasting System (WAFS) satellite broadcast. The stored GRIB data can then be converted to PCGRIDDS format. The program is DOS based and uses an interface card to accomplish the physical connection with, and data reception from the WAFS Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) receiver.

Program: LDM 5.1
Member: United States of America Centre: Unidata Program Center
Description: The Unidata Local Data Manager (LDM) is a collection of cooperating programs that select, capture, manage, and distribute data products. The system is designed for event-driven data distribution, and is currently used in the Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) project. The LDM system includes network client and server programs and their shared protocols. An important characteristic of the LDM is its support for flexible and site-specific configuration.

Remarks: Input format: Data can either be ingested directly from a data source by a client ingester, or from ther upstream LDM servers. Ingesters scan a data stream, determine product oundaries, and extract products, passing those products on to the server. These data, in turn, can be processed locally and/or passed on to other LDM servers. Output format: Data passed to the LDM server are processed in a variety of ways; how specific data are processed is determined by data identifiers and a configuration file. Processing actions include placing the data in files or running arbitrary programs on the data. Some decoders are available from Unidata that interface with the LDM and convert data into forms required by various applications.
