  Description: The WMO Information System (WIS) will be a coordinated, distributed, global infrastructure for the collection and sharing of observations, data and information for all WMO and related international programs. Building on the WMO Global Telecommunications System (GTS) including the Main Traffic Network (MTN), satellite-based data-distribution systems and the internet, and supporting different user groups and access policies, WIS will provide for: routine collection and automated dissemination of observed data and products; timely delivery of data and products, including ad-hoc requests; and, interoperability among diverse data management systems and datasets. A key component of WIS is the Integrated Global Data Dissemination Service (IGDDS), which itself utilises other components of WIS including the GTS, satellite communications and the internet for the exchange of space-based observation data and products.
