Catalogue trouble

Following an upgrade of the front- and backend services of the catalogue, the catalogue search engine was restructured yesterday and reindexing of datasets initiated. During the evening of November 21 a hardware outage prevented completion of the reindexing process. Due to this, the catalogue is yet not properly populated. This work will continue once hardware issues have been fixed.

Planned maintenance November 21th

Wednesday 21th November, maintenance is planned in the computer halls hosting the services. This will start 12:30 CET and may last for 2.5 hours. During this period services may not be available. In addition the search engine will be rebuilt this day. This may cause interruptions throughout the day.

SYNOP stations from WMO GTS added

Information at WMO SYNOP stations with open data access have been extracted from WMO BUFR to NetCDF/CF. This is now available in the catalogue. Information on the data centre hosting the data is correct, but the data is provided by the WMO members, not the Norwegian Meteorological Institute. Work is in progress on how to proper credit the originating provider.

Maintenance

Backend services are updated June 30 and July 1. Interruptions in operation may occur.

New functionality

An interactive service that can be used to validate NetCDF/CF and ACDD files have been added to the Support section. This is available through https://applicate.met.no/dataset_validation/form.
