Canned Data

The canned data site is now here. You will be redirected in 5 seconds.

The default localization in the AWIPS Migration software ("AWIPS II") is OAX. Each hour, SEC posts a tarball of current OAX SBN data representing an hour's worth of data. Six tarballs, containing data from the past six hours, are available for download. The tarballs range in size from several hundred MB to more than a GB. The table below is updated every hour, so be sure to refresh this page when visiting.

Download instructions: Right-mouse click on the file name. Choose "Save Link As..." in FireFox/Mozila or "Save Target As.." in Internet Explorer.

A procedure has been developed that will automatically feed the data contained in the tarballs to EDEX in real-time fashion. To use it, download the tarball spam_edex-1.4.tgz, unpack it, and read the instructions contained in README.ingestData.

Please contact Chung Wu prior to re-distributing the above materials to parties outside of NWS/NOAA.
