Who needs Sudoku when you have a puzzle like Data Management?

Dave Spiegl, MSC, Toronto, ON, Canada; and P. Wong, R. Campbell, O. Jacobsen, and B. Fehr

The Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) collects a vast array of irreplaceable data. Handling of data has always been a core strength of the MSC, but the evolution of technology and the ever-increasing availability and volume of new data warranted significant changes to the way MSC manages these data. With an emphasis on ensuring data quality, MSC is tackling the way it handles data and metadata with a multi-year, life-cycle managed data infrastructure initiative called the DMF or Data Management Framework. The DMF rationalizes the flow of monitoring data throughout MSC's infrastructure to ensure that internal and external clients as well as MSC partners have reliable and relevant access to meteorological, hydrometric and air quality data and metadata for their immediate (real-time) and future (archived) requirements.

Some key data characteristics driving the Data Management Framework:
