[WMDS Category 3] An observing facility (station/platform) can be anything that supports making observations, e.g., a fixed station, moving equipment or a remote sensing platform. In abstract terms, an observing facility groups a near colocation of observing equipment managed by a single entity or several entities.<br/>
