Hi, Wmobufr is an open source Java package for translating WMO BUFR files into XML. Now wmobufr is available at SourceForge. The wmobufr package offers both a Java API for reading BUFR files and a command-line utility to translate BUFR files into XML. The WMO BUFR format is widely used for observational weather data. The format uses about 750 tables to encode observations into bit strings. The tables and format are specified in standards published by the WMO, the World Meteorological Organization. The wmobufr package includes the WMO version 13 BUFR tables. The package is released under the BSD open source license. The package is available at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/wmobufr/ Although this is the initial public release, the wmobufr package has been in operational use here at UCAR for nearly a year. This is a one-time mailing to persons who may be interested. You are NOT on the list to receive future announcements. If you wish to receive future infrequent announcements relating to wmobufr, please let me know.
