NOAA Meteorological Development Laboratory's GRIB2 Product Encoder
Entry ID: NOAA_MDL_GRIB2ENCODER


Summary
Abstract: The National Weather Service (NWS) is creating a National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) which will contain gridded forecasts of several weather elements. In general, the weather parameters in the NDFD will be ground-based, sensible weather elements. The forecast grids that comprise the NDFD will come from multiple sources, including the NWS' Weather Forecast Offices(WFO) and the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP). The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) has adopted Edition 2 of the GRIB code as a standard for sharing GRIdded Binary data. GRIB, Edition 2 (GRIB2) will be involved in the NDFD in two ways. GRIB2 will be one of the primary formats used to transmit NDFD data to NWS customers and partners.
