WIS Implementation in RA-V Current Status and Future Plan
GISC Melbourne WIS Network • WIS Core Network connecting all GISC centres Main Telecommunication Network (MTN) in GTS terms. 4 centres (Tokyo, Exeter, Washington, Toulouse) connected. 2 centres (Offenbach, Seoul) soon to be connected • Area Meteorological Data Communication Network (AMDCN) Regional, Inter-regional and additional links (Regional Meteorological Telecommunication Network (RMTN) in GTS terms) consisting of IP-VPN, Frame Relay, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and internet • Melbourne is the only RTH centre on the MTN • Melbourne is the only designated Global Information System Centre (GISC) in RA-V, formally designated by EC in June 2012.
RA-V Regional Meteorological Telecommunication Network (RMTN)
WIS implementation (GTS + DAR) The existing GTS transmission service is being transformed into a more comprehensive and flexible information service which includes the publication of online catalogues and an ability to search for and retrieve needed information. The WIS architecture includes three components: Global Information System Centres (GISC): GISC Melbourne will provide a hub for the south west Pacific for information sharing and supersede the current Regional Telecommunications Hub (RTH) of the GTS; National Centres (NC): each National Meteorological Service will need to operate a NC to participate in WIS; Data Collection and Production Centres (DCPC): other centres which generate data and provide access to
Discovery, Access and Retrieve (DAR) Metadata Catalogue • RTH role • Update of Volume C 1 on behalf of all Members in RA-V • Ad hoc and semi-annual update • Integrated with Message Switching Table • Migrating to DAR Metadata Catalogue • Automated and manual update of DAR in progress • RA-V Members notified of progress in Open.

What are we working on?
RA-V Working Group on Infrastructure Regional Association V has the following subsidiary bodies: Management Group (MG); Tropical Cyclone Committee for the South Pacific and South-east Indian Ocean (TCC); Working Group on Hydrological Services (WG-HYS); Working Group on Climate Services (WG-CLS); Working Group on Weather Services (WG-WXS); Working Group on Infrastructure (WG-INFR). The objective of the Working Group on Infrastructure (WG-INFR) is to contribute to the improvement of infrastructure (data and information services) for weather, climate and water in Region V through implementation of the WMO Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) and WMO Information System (WIS) [both WIS/GTS and WIS/DAR]
Task Team on Satellite User Requirements
What are we working on? TASK TEAM ON REGIONAL IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGY FOR NEW WIS DATA DAR SERVICES Coordinator: Kelvin Wong Objective To assist Member countries in RA V to work together to achieve a coordinated approach to the implementation of new WIS data Discovery Access and Retrieval (DAR) services in RA V. Benefits The work of this Task Team will help to achieve RKO 4. 2. 1 (WIS is implemented) by establishing a regional implementation strategy for WIS/DAR and enhancing the capability of Members across the Region to access and supply weather, climate, hydrological and related environmental data and information. Melbourne GISC was officially designated by WMO Executive Council on 30 June. It will become operational early 2013. WMO recently requested Member countries to nominate a Principal GISC. It is understood that many RA-V Member countries nominated GISC Melbourne. It is planned that there will be provision of information and training support for Member countries, designed to cover all aspects of operating a WIS National Centre and, where relevant, the operation of a DCPC…….
What are we working on? TASK TEAM ON MIGRATION TO TABLE DRIVEN CODE FORMS IN RA V Coordinator: Dr Weiqing Qu Objective To assist the coordination amongst Member countries of RA V of their plans for, and progress on, migration to the use of TDCF in accordance with WMO plans. Benefits The work of this Task Team will help to achieve RKO 4. 2. 1 (WIS is implemented) by enhancing the capability of Members to participate in the international exchange of data. The old character-based codes are currently being replaced by table-driven code forms (TDCF). Each country is required to receive and send data in the new TDCF before the (now extended) deadline of November 2014 when all use of the old formats will be discontinued. It is planned that Pacific countries be assisted to build their capacity to receive and send data in the new formats. This assistance may include provision of an off-theshelf software system for converting data between the old and new formats…….
What are we working on? Proposal for training and capacity building (in WIS and TDCF) to be funded by Aus. AID: Two concepts (WIS and TDCF) were proposed to the Aus. AID Pacific Public Sector Linkages Program (Pac. PSLP) under a combined proposal: Training and Implementing systems for participation by Pacific countries in open international exchange of meteorological information. It was proposed that counterpart agencies interested in participating would be the National Meteorological Services of twelve Countries: Cook Islands, Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. Aus. AID recently approved the proposal. The main objective of the proposal is: • A training workshop on WIS&TDCF (29 April – 3 May 2013) • Planning and assisting the Pacific countries for the implementation of WIS/TDCF (2013 -2014).
Challenges in RA-V Continuing need to develop the WIS/GTS capabilities as a more basic and priority requirement ahead of other aspects of WIS (DAR), such as • Improved communication links • last-mile capabilities • backup options
