  • The Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data (BUFR) is a binary data format maintained by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). The latest version is BUFR Edition 4. BUFR Edition 3 is also considered current for operational use. BUFR was created in 1988 with the goal of replacing the WMO's dozens of character-based, position-driven meteorological codes, such as SYNOP (surface observations), TEMP (upper air soundings) and CLIMAT (monthly climatological data). BUFR was designed to be portable, compact, and universal. Any kind of data can be represented, along with its specific spatial/temporal context and any other associated metadata. In the WMO terminology, BUFR belongs to the category of table-driven code forms, where the meaning of data elements is determined by referring to a set of tables that are kept and maintained separately from the message itself. BUFR is a complex format that can be difficult to use and it presents some weaknesses. The introduction of BUFR format led to data "disparition" and many formatting errors. (en)
  • 二進形式汎用気象通報式(にしんけいしきはんようきしょうつうほうしき)、通称BUFR(Binary Universal Form for the Representation of meteorological data、バファー)とは、世界気象機関(WMO)が規定する国際的な気象通報の方式(気象通報式)。二進(バイナリ)データとしてファイルフォーマット化し伝送する方式。 各観測点から多数の気象要素を伝達する場合は、SYNOP、SHIP、METARなどを用いて使用しやすいようにしている。しかし、これとはまた異なる情報で、二進形式での伝達が効率の良いものが存在する。例えば、1要素について多数の観測点から集められてくる情報(実例:ウインドプロファイラ)や、平均値や平年差などの統計情報、数値予報に関係する格子点・計算値の情報(gpv,grib,grib2)などは、無駄の少ない二進形式が適している。 (ja)
