Last year the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC), as part of its commitment to increasing the accuracy and accessibility of its data holdings, began working with Climate Database Modernization Program (CDMP) contractors to create a new system to maintain and query station history information. The goal was a system that would accommodate both current and future station groups, permitting new networks of stations to be added without changes to the user interface or underlying database structure. Climate researchers are geographically dispersed, and the system had to permit access independent of geographic location.
The new web-based system, called Mi3, is now operational. This paper will present an overview of the system's capabilities and its user interface. The poster session will demonstrate the system's functionality, highlighting its query and presentation capabilities and its depth of content.
