Unlocking the Benefits of Open Weather Data
The presentation was delivered by Prof. Dr. Gerhard Adrian, President of the WMO and President of the German Weather Service (Deutscher Wetterdienst, DWD).
The webinar explored the issues surrounding open data in the context of weather and climate data and services. New government-level policies, such as the European Union Open Data Directive, are likely to have a significant impact on the delivery of meteorological and climate services. There is the potential for unlocking significant socio-economic benefits from the application of such policies.
In the presentation, Prof. Dr. Adrian addressed the implications of open data policies from his perspective as the President of DWD.
This was the second of an ongoing series of webinars and other media events organised by the GWE Forum which are likely to be of interest to a broad audience interested in learning more about innovations in accurate weather forecasting and the use of weather-related data to save lives, improve business efficiency, and build social and economic resilience.
