The first training session at the Uganda national met authority about how to test/use the beta web version of the weather data repository (WDR) took place last week... more training sessions are scheduled so as to get more feedback from UNMA. The developing interns are presently compiling a user manual and finalising the desktop and mobile app versions. If all goes as planned, by end of November we shall have a complete package. The WDR is open source hence allows access to the source code for ease of further developments as need arises. This is in contrast with the presently used climsoft/clicom, etc packages where access to source code is restricted to only the original developers, among other limitations, which WIMEA-ICT has addressed with the WDR.
