MADIS Provider Resources
The demands for finer scale meteorological services have increasingly required higher resolution observations to initialize and evaluate weather and climate models, applications, and products. MADIS partnerships with international agencies; federal, state, and local agencies (e.g. state Departments of Transportation); universities; volunteer networks; and private sector (e.g. airlines, railroads) providers have added over 66,000 surface stations from over 160 non-NOAA surface networks to NOAA's surface observations. These partnerships are helping to improve National Weather Service's (NWS) Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) and forecasting services as well as providing a service to the providers.
MADIS provides the following services for providers:
- Quality Control
- Quality Control Statistics for non-restricted surface networks.
- Global database of spatially and temporally integrated observations.
- Standardized access to the Global database.
- Notification if network is not reporting.
The Citizens Weather Observer Program (CWOP) has resources for providers that can be found at the CWOP web site.
