Below you will find three variations of the WPS geographical input data download sets. A table is provided to show what can be found in each download. To download, click on the (blue) title of the dataset that is best suited for your simulation.

The first column is all available datasets. These can be downloaded individually, as needed. The second column is a complete dataset. This is every type of static data we have available (**WARNING** this is a VERY large file ~49 GB, uncompressed). The third column is a column that contains the lowest resolution of each field that is mandatory (this is the minimum requirement for running geogrid.exe). The final column contains the files that are new to version 3.9 of the wrf code release. An 'x' indicates which fields are available in each data tar file.
