Projects / WDB


WDB is a weather data storage system for storage of weather and water observations, forecasts, analysis fields, and models. The system should be compatible with the meteorological standards BUFR and GRIB (version 1 and 2). In addition to generic loading programs, WDB also features a flexible retrieval interface for retrieving weather data in time series or entire fields. WDB is built using PostgreSQL extended with PostGIS.
