WIGOS Relationships

WMO Information System (WIS)

WIGOS development and implementation will proceed in parallel with the planning and implementation of the WMO Information System (WIS).  The combination of both efforts will allow for an integrated WMO end-to-end system of systems designed to improve Member’s capability to effectively provide a wide range of services and to better serve research programme requirements.  


WMO endorsed the concept of the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS) and emphasized that the relevant WMO components should also be GEOSS components. WMO participation in GEOSS would be on a basis of mutual benefit, to maximize synergies and minimize duplication and to facilitate the free and unrestricted exchange of data and, in particular, that all essential data (as defined in Resolution 40 (Cg-XII) and Resolution 25 (Cg-XIII)) be made available through the GEO interoperable arrangements.
