The initiative is part of a wider drive towards improved data management procedures. It will facilitate more coherent data analysis to support decision-making as well as self-management of data.
Through the Country Profile Database, users can access the following information on a per country basis:
- basic geographical information;
- more detailed information on surface and upper air observation stations, radars and Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) stations and centres contributing to the WMO Information System (WIS);
- meteorological and hydrological information and climatological norms;
- contacts for national emergency management authorities and for members of WMO technical commissions.
Authorized representatives of WMO Members can directly log-on to the portal to update certain data for their own country, thus introducing the concept of self-management. The launch of the Country Profile Database implements a request of the Sixteenth World Meteorological Congress in 2011.
