Summary
Abstract: The Unidata Local Data Manager (LDM) is a collection of cooperating programs that select, capture, manage, and distribute meteorological data products. The system is designed for event-driven data distribution, and is currently used in the Unidata Internet Data Distribution (IDD) project. The LDM system includes network client and server programs and their shared protocols. An important characteristic of the LDM is its support for flexible and site-specific configuration.

LDM ingester clients handle data from several sources, including the National Weather Service ``NOAAport channel 3'' and McIDAS data from the Unidata/Wisconsin feed.

The Unidata LDM software is now used by more than 150 universities/cooperating agencies. The LDM5 software is currently freely available via anonymous FTP in source form or as binaries for several supported platforms from the Unidata Program Center.
