Guidebook and Dataset Information

The WOUDC Guidebook has been renewed and a new Dataset Information page has been added. While the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site for accessing data is still available, it is no longer updated or supported. See the Data Access page for other options for accessing data. Users are encouraged to provide feedback through the WOUDC contact form.

UV Index and Data Access FTP Migration

A beta version of the UV Index dataset is now available on the Data Search / Download page (see UVIndex for additional information). The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site for accessing data is targeted for decommissioning in December 2015 and has been replaced by a Web Accessible Folder (WAF) (see the WAFHowto for help). Users are encouraged to provide feedback through the WOUDC email address.

Legacy FTP and Website Decommissioning

As part of WOUDC renewal, the data centre is targeting decommissioning of the legacy website in August 2015 and the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) site for accessing data in December 2015. The FTP site has been replaced by a web accessible folder (WAF), which provides various advantages over an FTP site and makes available a straightforward transition (see the WAFHowto for help). Users are encouraged to provide feedback through the WOUDC email address.

New Website

Welcome to the renewed WOUDC! Improved data access is one of the major enhancements (see data access summary page for details). As part of the transition the legacy WOUDC will continue to be available for a short period of time. Users are encouraged to provide feedback through the WOUDC email address.
