Open CDMS Strategy

 

Vision statement

ET-CDMS in 2015 noted that:

  • Currently, significant investment is needed to maintain a multitude of CDMS worldwide to generate data for regional and global analyses.
  • These CDMS are not compliant with the new WMO #1131, Climate Data Management Systems Specifications.
  • Significant investment will be required to conform to the requirements of WMO 1131.
  • It will be very expensive and wasteful of resources to develop the same functionality in many CDMS.
  • There are several open source CDMS used by WMO members.
  • There is considerable potential to address this situation by rationalising these open source CDMS.

Therefore ET-CDMS propose that:

  • Open source CDMS should converge on one Reference Open Source CDMS, namely Open-CDMS.
  • Investment is required to make this happen.
