XML/RSS, and GIS Data

The National Weather Service is making a number of its products and services available to the public through new and emerging technologies such as Extensible Markup Language (XML) Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) messages, Really Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds, and geographic information system (GIS) schemes. These experimental initiatives and data feeds are slowly growing, so if you don't see something you are interested in now, stop back here later, or visit http://www.weather.gov/rss/ or http://www.weather.gov/gis/ to see what we have to offer.
