Real-time Unidata THREDDS-based Weather Forecast Model Output Services

A collection of real-time weather forecast model output datasets of the type that provide a challenge in the GALEON experiment is available at: Real time weather forecast model data from the Unidata IDD (Internet Data Distribution): http://motherlode.ucar.edu:8080/thredds/idd/models.html

This page points to catalogs of datasets that contain the output of several different weather forecast models run at the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). By drilling down into these catalogs of catalogs, one can get a list of datasets corresponding to recent forecast model runs. More information about four different protocols for accessing these datasets can be found at GALEON-related Services along with a few examples.

NERC(Natural Environment Research Center) WCS, OPeNDAP, CSML Server

An experimental WCS server is available at http://glue.badc.rl.ac.uk/cgi-bin/TPAC/WCS It has both CSML (describing underlying netCDF but could describe other file formats) and DODS/OPeNDAP at the backend. It serves 4D data in CF-netCDF.

There is also an earlier MapServer WCS serving GMT NetCDF here (does not do 4D) Capabilities: http://glue.badc.rl.ac.uk/cgi-bin/mapserv?map=/var/www/html/jiscInterop/nerc.map&Service=wcs&version=1.0.0&REQUEST=GetCapabilities This is probably of less interest to GALEON than the other WCS.

These can both be considered semi-permanent although hey aren't fully operational.

Information on CSML can be found here: http://ndg.nerc.ac.uk/csml/

Be aware that certain aspects of CSML are being revised, so this information will change.

NOAA NCDC (National Climatic Data Center) Web Services

As active participants in the ESIP Federation as well as the OGC GALEON and GSN efforts, NCDC has set up a number of experimental web services that can be considered semi-permanent.

GrADS Data Server (GDS) and OPeNDAP enabled Web Service for long-term NCEP model NWP can be found on the NOMADS Model access system at: http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov

The publicially acessible THREDDS Data Server with various datasets can be found at: http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov:8085/thredds/catalog.html Test datasets onm TDS include ISCCP Satellite DataSet HIRS Clear Sky Satellite DataSet VTPR Satellite Brightness Temperature DataSet Test Radar Dataset "Projects" directory contains GFS model wind data used in OGC WCS Web Service cahining for OGC Demo Blended Ocean Winds

NCDC also has a LAS available including TDS driven LAS aggreating a new Blended Ocean Winds product developed under a joint NESDIS-NMFS PRIDE proposal project at Directory "Test: Datasets in experimental phase": at: http://nomads.ncdc.noaa.gov:8085/las/servlets/dataset

Univ. of Florence and IMAA-CNR WCS, ncML-GML Server, CPS

http://zeus.pin.unifi.it/projects/wcs-g/ - An experimental WCS server capable of serving (subsets of) 4D CF-netCDF datasets, in binary netCDF format and in ncML-GML. The server is based on an underlying OPeNDAP server instance and on the ncML-GML Java API. Information on ncML-GML can be found at: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/Nativi/GML-Days/GML_Days_Presentation.pdf

http://zeus.pin.unifi.it/projects/wms-g/ - An experimental WMS server capable of portraying the 3D coverages served by our WCS server (see above). The server produces 2-D pictorial representations in PNG format.

These can both be considered semi-permanent although they aren't fully operational.

International University Bremen RASDAMAN GALEON-related Services

The RasDaMan (RASter DAta MANager] group at the International University Bremen have set up a page with GALEON-related services at


This is based on the WCS 1.0 implementation; a WCS 1.1 will follow after 1.1 gaining stability.
