DIGITIZATION AND DATA RESCUE OF MANUAL WEATHER DATA REPOSITORY Facilitating the digitization of manual weather records (through a customized digitization programme), which is suitable for the E. African context in view of weather data management needs empirically assessed. As a data rescue strategy for Uganda, WIMEA-ICT project has initially facilitated the imaging/scanning of 6000 manually recorded paper-based weather records. This is the first stage of digitization. In 2015, WIMEA-ICT project provided digitization equipment (mobile handheld & A3 automatic document feeder/flatbed scanners). The WIMEA-ICT team trained and supervised the digitization exercise at the Uganda National Meteorological Authority (UNMA).

WIMEA-ICT WEATHER DATA REPOSITORY DESIGN Design, install and commission customized Weather Data Repository (WDR) software package that integrates digitized old manual and formally scattered weather data, current manually observed data, and data from automatic weather stations being designed by RC3. The WDR will provide real time weather data as input into Research Component 1 to facilitate weather forecasting/climate modeling and into RC4’s designed weather dissemination systems.
