  • Welcome to the monthly series of sessions on EUMETSAT Data Access Services

    Starting October 2021, we present a new monthly series of open, online short sessions on the Data Access Services and their usage via GUIs and APIs. With this series we hope to increase the amount of users moving from the legacy data access services to the new Data Access Services (Data Store, Data Tailor, EUMETView) by removing the technical challenges in using the GUIs and APIs. In each session we will be answering top questions posted by you. Each session is recorded and listed below. 

    We invite your contribution:
    We encourage you to post your questions in sli.do at any time, so that we can adapt the content of the next session to answer them. In order to post go to Sli.do with code #data-services or use this link: https://app.sli.do/event/flsdivtc

    Facilitated by: Pablo Benedicto

          • Find out more about the series

            With this series of drop-in session we hope to increase the amount of users moving from the legacy data access services to the new Data Access Services (Data Store, Data Tailor, EUMETView) by removing the technical challenges in using the GUIs and APIs.

            We hope that by attending the series, EUMETSAT users will be able to: 

            1. To use the Data Store service to browse, search for, download and eventually subscribe to, collections and products of interest using both GUI and API, as required.
            2. To use the Data Tailor Web Service to customise products to create bespoke data streams that fit their applications, via both GUI and API, as required
            3. To use the Data Tailor Web Service to customise products to mirror existing processing chains that rely on EUMETCast and/or the Data Centre.
            4. To use the EUMETView OMS GUI to: i) discover layers, ii) craft their own views, iii) manipulate and share views, iv) export data from layers as time series, images and animations, and v) link layers to Data Store collections where appropriate.
            5. In addition to the above, users should be able to use the EUMETView OMS API to i) discover capabilities, ii) exploit the WMS/WCS/WFS endpoints to construct customised data requests.
            6. To know where to find resources to support the use of the new data access services
            7. To know where to go for further help in using the new data access services
