Updates to the search interface and the catalogue

This weekend the YOPP Data Portal backends were updated to take advantage of a number of improvements in the search interface. In this process,  synoptic weather station information extracted from WMO GTS have been added to the catalogue. These stations are normally presented as time series at stations. The search interface now allows plotting and transformation of these data on the fly. As this is a net centric service, beware that depending on the network traffic and the response time of the contributing data centres web services this may take some seconds.

Scheduled maintenance

The backend system for the YOPP Data Portal has been upgraded. In order to utilise the new functionality available, discovery metadata have to be reingested. This will be done June 20-29. Irregular behaviour may occur during this period.
