Adasa develops the Meteorological Watchers Network of the Meteorological Service of Catalonia

January 2009 

The 24th January Francesc Baltasar - Minister of the Environment and Housing of the Generalitat of Catalonia - and David Rodríguez - manager of the Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya (SMC, Meteorological Service of Catalonia) - introduced the Meteorological Watchers Network (XOM).

This network has been developed in order to improve weather forecasting and upgrade the information of the climate at Catalonia.

With the XOM, the SMC will complement weather data that currently is supplied by the Meteorological Equipment Network of the Generalitat of Catalonia. The XOM is integrated by a group of collaborators distributed throughout all the territory, who voluntarily gather, register and communicate to SMC weather incidences. The watchers send this information through a Web application or by mobile telephone and data are published in real time at the Web of the Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya.

Adasa has been the engineering that has developed and implanted this application, which will help the Servei Meteorològic de Catalunya to carry out its functions related to weather forecasting and Catalonia’s meteorological and climate knowledge.
