OpenWIS-Core is an implementation of WMO Information Systems (WIS) and aims to perform the tree functions required by the WIS, i.e. GISC, DCPC, and NC. It was originally developed by AKKA Information System (France) on behalf of the OpenWIS Association (with UKMO, MF, BoM, KMA, and MFI as founding members).

The OpenWIS Association (originally a consortium) was created in 2011 by 4 National Meteorological Services (Australia, France, Korea and UK) and 1 service provider (MFI) in order to come up with a technical solution for WIS compliance.

The first version of the OpenWIS-Core software was released in 2012 and it has since then been engaged in a process of continuous improvement. It fulfils all WIS requirements for GISCs (Global Information System Centers), DCPCs (Data Collection or Production Centers) and NCs (National Centers).

Objectives and plans

The status and plans of the OpenWIS-Core project can be tracked through the use of the kanban boards and backlogs.
