The Western Region of the National Weather Service is employing FX-Net to provide real-time meteorological data to venues of the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. By serving the data at regional headquarters, datasets not normally available via FX-Net, will be available to these widespread locations. These data sets include specialized satellite imagery, mesonet observations, and other regional datasets. The flexibilty of FX-Net has greatly symplified the exchange of data during the Olympics.
