2014 User Workshop in Toulouse, France and on-line survey

This 6th OSI SAF user workshop took place on the 19-20 November 2014 in Météo-France headquarter. The survey was proposed to users during the second half of 2014.

The outcome of the survey and the workshop and the material presented during the workshop is available below.
