OSCAR/Surface Release 1.8 now available

We are happy to announce the release of a new version of the OSCAR/Surface application (https://oscar.wmo.int/surface). Since today, Tuesday, 20 September 2022, the release version 1.8.3 is available which includes the automatic synchronization of national focal points contacts between OSCAR/Surface database of registered users and the WMO experts/focal points contacts database.

Other important new features that are part of this release included the station clusters functionality and the search stations by declared and/or assessed reporting status.

Together with this release a migration of stations from GOS to GOS-General has been implemented, according to the updated code tables for Programme/network affiliations (http://codes.wmo.int/wmdr/_ProgramAffiliation).

To provide users with updated information on how to use the new features, the OSCAR/Surface user’s manual has been updated and made available online from this URL: https://library.wmo.int/index.php?lvl=notice_display&id=20824#.XaRg0a6Wapq.

As always, we look forward to receiving your feedback on this new release.

Thank you,

The WIGOS team
