Subject:  Discontinue the Experimental NDFD WFS:  Effective

          March 1, 2011


Effective March 1, 2011, at approximately 1500 Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), the NWS will discontinue the experimental Web Feature Service for National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD).  The service received very few requests for data and did not develop a set of consistent users. The NWS is pursuing other similar services and will make them available for experimental use and comment and review when complete.


If you have any questions regarding discontinuance of this service, please contact:
