News at Integrated Warning Service System (IWSS) for dangerous weather and floods
Warnings for severe weather phenomena including flood phenomena are issued by Czech Hydrometeorological Institute since the year 2000. Warnings are issued in agreement with philosophy of Meteoalarm, European warning system, and they are displayed at Meteoalarm website (www.meteoalarm.eu). This year, a new version of IWSS was put into operation. Warnings are issued using the Alert Editor application of the Visual Weather software. The application was developed by IBL software Engineering in cooperation with CHMI.
New warning websites enable better visualization of warnings for the public and other users. Warnings are now issued at the CAP protocol (Common Alerting Protocol) according to a recommendation of World Meteorological Organisation. The main advantage of this protocol is a possibility to make outputs according to the user’s needs and possibility of technological processing of information.
