Moving Weather Model Ensembles To A Geospatial Database For The Aviation Weather Center


Moving weather model gridded data to a geospatial database enables forecasters and researchers to access and analyze the data in novel ways. My import program moves the NCEP 40km SREF (short range ensemble forecast) to PostGIS for the Aviation Weather Center, and I've also developed a web service interface (for external applications to leverage) as well as an HTML 5 web application. In this talk, I'll discuss the performance implications of accessing gridded data in PostGIS as well as the great potential for data mining.
