Anyone tried ambient weather exchange?
« on: November 21, 2003, 10:28:33 PM »
I did, but i could not get my local airport, using a IMO code, to display
also, i could get WD to pull from WU a locations extreme data, which is publicly available anyway
e.g from:
http://www.wunderground.com/US/NC/KMRH.html?almanac=1
and have that info available in wd

Looks like WU does not have all the bugs worked out yet.  Maybe you could post a message in the “Bugs” thread on the WD Forum. Let Brian have a try at it.  He can work on it during his spare time.   :lol:

I contacted WU, and they said they can provide data so that WD can show a stations history data, i.e mean and maximum /minumum climatological records (that data is actualy available already on their web site, just not easily found).We may also be able to incorporate into wd nearby WU stations data to a station you specifiy , in a way similar to ambients weather exchange.....(you have to keep up wtih the jones , yes?)

good idea guys?

as time permits....
