The NOAA Observing System Architecture (NOSA) is a collection of over 100 of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) environmental datasets. It was established to develop an observational architecture that helps NOAA to design observing systems that support NOAA's mission, avoid duplication of existing systems and operate efficiently in a cost-effective manner.
