World Weather Watch (WWW)
Software packages available for exchange

The World Weather Watch is dependent on computer-based solutions for its operation. The free exchange of meteorological application software amongst WMO Members helps the distribution, implementation and use of software packages at WWW centres.

The CBS Software Registry provides information to Members on the software packages offered by individual Members through the WMO. The actual exchange of software or provision of software support should, in each case, be arranged as a bilateral (multilateral) activity between a donor and a recipient country (countries). Donors are invited to indicate whether or not update and maintenance support can be provided for the offered software.

The sixth session of the CBS Management Group (Geneva, 3-5 April 2006) - noting that no updates to the CBS software registry have been provided by WMO Members since 2000 - agreed on the preparation of a new edition of the CBS software registry. The CBS Management Group felt that the new edition should be organized so that the information given in the WMO server be the minimum information facilitating the access to the detailed information available in the servers of the WMO Members. The CBS Management Group also agreed to make an evaluation of the exchange of software packages parts of the CBS Software Registry and received by WMO Members since 2000.

WMO Members are requested to review their contributions and inform the WMO Secretariat of any changes.
