Canadian Central Road and Weather Forecasting System - National Meteorological Service Functionality

Terminator Description

This terminator provides weather, hydrologic, and climate information and warnings of hazardous weather including thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, winter weather, tsunamis, and climate events. It provides atmospheric weather observations and forecasts that are collected and derived by the Meteorological Service of Canada, private sector providers, and various research organizations. This terminator represents the national ESS data exchange network, which collects environmental data from ITS systems, assesses the quality of the data, and disseminates the qualified data upon request (including dissemination to ITS systems). The interface provides formatted weather data and forecasts products suitable for on-line processing and integration with other ITS data products as well as Doppler radar images, satellite images, severe storm warnings, and other products that are formatted for presentation to various ITS users.
