Today, provide a brief overview
of the social science component
and share several practical
applications for the Hazard
Services prototype design.

Moving from Product-Centric to Information-Centric
Hazard Information
Still need to store both legacy VTEC (Valid Time Event
Code) product-centric information along with “atomic”
information-centric information.

Next Steps and Future Work

Summary of Prototyping Work
– Prototyping has
• “Touched on” ~60% of requirements
• Provided a good launching point for gathering
functional requirements and IOC design
• Yet only covers ~20% of the functionality

Future Work
-- Integrated GSD / RTS team for Phase 1 production
development
-- Goals: OSIP Gate 3 and IOC
-- Development Tasks

Data Transformation Framework for
algorithms such as Recommenders and Text
Products
Database Solution – working with Iris team on
storage formats, security, authentication
User Interface and Forecast Process –
common GUI for efficient and accurate hazard
generation
Hazard Services across perspectives
A possible step toward integrating AWIPS Applications
• Common Data Access
• Common Tools – iTools, Recommenders,
Text Products
• Collaboration
• Real-time
• Data Sharing
• National Data “Cloud”
