Weatherbug
« on: October 09, 2018, 02:55:43 AM »
Sorry if this is the wrong place for this.  I have noticed for a long time that it doesn't seem WeatherBug is working right.  The link on the control panel page gives me a 404 error and when I tried to use the "test data" option, it crashed WD. 

Awhile back I attempted to contact WB and got no reply.  I actually wrote them multiple times over the past couple years and they just ignore me.

When I look on their map, I don't see any PWSs at all....  Are they still accepting data and where can I see it displayed? 

Thanks

I did a little digging and found some info on https://athena.trixology.com/index.php?topic=2749.0

"We are transitioning PWS owners from the old Backyard and Earth Networks PWS program to the NWS CWOP (the Citizens Weather Observer Program managed by the National Weather Service).  Earth Networks will continue to receive this weather station network data through the NOAA MADIS service. Once the transition is complete, we will no longer be directly managing the PWS publishing API’s or PWS publishing system that is tied to the old Backyard/Earth Networks PWS program, and we will be phasing out the old system once the transition is complete."

" • 2.   Please remove the “WeatherBug” publishing feature from your PWS publishing app or PWS hardware appliance. We will be phasing out support for this API and publishing service after the transition to NWS CWOP is complete. This will occur before the end of May 2018.  Please ensure you include this change in a future updates to your PWS publishing app or PWS hardware appliance firmware."

I did a search here for info on WB and this forum topic was the most current I found and nothing in regard to the announecment above?

Thanks again!

Found another string here regarding the company that took over, owns, or has some connection to Weatherbug and they were clear:

:PWS Publishing app partners will want to remove the "WeatherBug" feature from their publishing apps by the end of May and direct PWS owners to send data over NWS CWOP instead.:
