National Digital Forecast Database User Defined GRIB2 files
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
Gridded forecasts requested by a user from the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) are encoded into GRIB2 and transmitted to that user via the World Wide Web (WWW). A user can be any member of the public, a government agency, or a commercial enterprise. The user chooses one of the weather elements that is available in the NDFD and specifies the bounding latitudes and longitudes of the grid that will be transmitted via a Web CGI interface. GRIB2 is data encoding standard described by the World Meteorological Organization in its document FM92 GRIB, Edition 2, Code Form and Tables.
