Abstract
Mayur Tech demonstrated a prototype web based system for submitting and storing observational station metadata for NOAA NWS programs during phase 1. We propose to develop this prototype into a complete metadata operational system leading to the development of commercial tools in phase 2. Mayur Tech plans to enhance the current CSSA metadata system, and add new functionality to NWS and FAA sites. The proposed system will enable users to add/update metadata and digital camera imagery easily through the web interface. Mayur Tech intends to add new projects and users such as Climate Reference Network and Mesonets (mesoscale synoptic networks) in consultation with NOAA NWS staff. Specifically we propose to complete and develop the following: ¿Enhancement of Station metadata system to include new fields and features identified by users, ¿Operational field testing of the system, ¿Architecture and system to include new potential users such as CRN and Mesonets, ¿Metadata standard that will work for multiple sources of metadata providers, ¿Tools to improve the timeliness and quality of meta data, ¿Portable Data Collection System (PDCS) for use in the field for data or metadata entry and communication, and ¿Comprehensive multimedia user training/documentation materials.
