Access to data

Background

The Norwegian Meteorological Institute (met.no) produce and manage data which is of relevance for a number of different users, ranging from the general public to highly specialised users. The general public is served mainly through http://yr.no/. However, many users are looking for data and not the interpretation of data that is served through http://yr.no/. For these users a number of data portals are available or under development. These data portals rely on metadata which refers to online datasets. met.no is using THREDDS Data Server to facilitate the access layer to data, effectively offering various access protocols. More information is provided below.
