Meteorological Products Processed
At The NWSTG - Line Specific Subsets

Notice: The files referenced on this page are updated every night. Please reload the page to insure that you have the latest information.

Subsets of the NWSTG Product Directory are provided here. These subsets are content-specific sets of data received at or sent from the NWSTG, identified for communication routing purposes by a WMO Abbreviated Header. The products in a subset may change on a daily basis as routing requirements evolve. The inclusion of a product in a subset does not imply that the product is available, only that if received at the NWSTG, the product will be routed as part of that subset. The format of the subset files is the same as the format of the NWSTG Product Directory. All subsets described below are available in a single file as

These files represent the state of all subsets as of .

FAMILY of SERVICES

The Family of Services (FOS) is made-up of multiple data streams of meteorological and hydrological messages. The contents of the individual services are defined by the users of the service. All Family of Services subsets are available in a single file as: These files represent the state of all FOS subsets as of .


Domestic Data Service (DDS) - Primairly comprised of bulletins containing United States weather information or observations.
The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the DDS as of .


Priority Domestic Data Service (PDDS) - Primairly comprised of priority-processed bulletins containing United States weather information or observations.
The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the PDDS as of .


International Data Service (IDS) - Primairly comprised of bulletins containing weather information or observations from outside of the United States.
The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the IDS as of .


Public Product Service (PPS) - Primairly comprised of bulletins containing information of urgent need, such as weather warnings and time critical information, such as hurricane and storm warnings. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the PPS as of .


High resolution Data Service (HDS) - Primairly comprised of bulletins containing centrally generated analysis and forecast fields in binary code forms. This is a highly cyclical transmission stream for two to three hours after model run time containing products which requires computer decoding and display. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the HDS as of .




INTERNATIONAL SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM

The International Satellite Communications System is composed of two systems for data delivery via satellite. The first system is the World Aviation Forecast System (WAFS) which supports the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) program for aviation data distribution. The second is a Global Telecommunication System (GTS) satellite system which will replace the World Meteorological Organization's (WMO) Caribbean and Central America current distribution and collection systems for Region IV and further the development of the GTS as a whole. All ISCS subsets are available in a single file as: These files represent the state of all ISCS subsets as of .


WAFS Text Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing textual data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .

WAFS GRIB Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing gridded binary data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .

WAFS Facsimilie Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing facsimilie data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .


GTS Text Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing textual data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .


GTS GRIB Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing gridded binary data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .

GTS Facsimilie Data Stream - Comprised of bulletins containing facsimilie data. The directory subset is available as: These files represent the state of the ISCS as of .




AWIPS/NOAAPort DATA TRANSMISSION

AWIPS is an integrated suite of automated data-processing equipment that will be deployed to NWS Field Offices and National Centers to support complex analysis, interactive processing, display of hydro-meteorological data, and the rapid dissemination of warnings and forecasts in a highly reliable manner. These sites will be supported by the AWIPS Communications Nework. A Wide-Area-Network will connect sites for multi-point to point and point-to-point communications. NOAAPort provides the communications capability, via a satellite broadcast network, to afford internal and external users open access to much of NOAA's centrally-collected and produced real-time environmental data. AWIPS hardware platforms and supporting communications infrastructure have been designed and sized to accommodate planned future development. The NOAAPort broadcast system provides a one-way broadcast communication of NOAA environmental data and information in near-real time to NOAA and external users. This broadcast service is implemented by a commercial provider of satellite communications utilizing C-band. All AWIPS/NOAAPort bulletins are available in a single file as: These files represent the state of the AWIPS/NOAAPort bulletin set as of .




EMERGENCY MANAGER'S WEATHER INFORMATION NETWORK

The Emergency Manager's Weather Information Network (EMWIN) provides access to weather and other critical emergency information. EMWIN is available to internal and external users via radio, internet, and satellite. All EMWIN bulletins are available in a single file as: These files represent the state of the EMWIN bulletin set as of . A complete description of the format and meaning of an Abbreviated Heading can be found in the WMO Manual On Global Telecommunication System, Volume I, No. 386.
