The Climate Data Management Services Division (CDMS) has the mandate of managing climate data from all meteorological observation systems owned by KMD and other partners in weather observations. Climate data is received through paper registers/forms, email, internet from Automatic Weather Stations (AWSs). This data undergoes quality control before archival. It is then keyed-in into the computerised electronic database where it undergoes further quality checks before it is archived ready to be availed to users.
CDMS manages KMD-ENACTS Maprooms, a dedicated KMD Climate Information Service (CIS) web portal available 24/7/36 . The Maprooms use merged station data with satellite estimates to produce climate information. The Maprooms aim is to enhance data availability, access and use, continuously on a decadal and daily basis. Maprooms users find climate information for a particular County or Ward.
