Provision of NWS data in geospatial form
Data Mining Tool
Outreach / Education
All Forecast Regions
The NWS provides data sets in formats that can be imported directly into Geographic Information Systems (GIS), a user’s custom map viewer, or web pages. The data formats include downloadable shapefiles, web services, and KML files, such as what is listed at https://www.weather.gov/gis/. NWS plans to provide more of its operational data in standard geospatial formats so the data may be seamlessly ingested into users’ systems independent of platform operating system, development software, and/or native data format. Data in standard geospatial formats may be provided for both existing operational products/data and future operational products/data (based on readiness and resource availability). Such efforts will be covered by the aforementioned SDD and will not undergo additional public comment/review beyond that done in conjunction with standard approval of any new/enhanced products/data.
