Should you be interested in working with the data yourself, the data sets for each individual year are here at your disposal. The topic «FITS Data» describes the data format. You can find out how reliable and complete the data sets are by reading the topics «Station», «Location» and «Reliability».

Click on the ZIP icon next to the year of interest to download the data.

Data Conversion

One measured value from a probe is stored encoded as a byte (8 bits). The byte value 255 is to be considered invalid. Even though the information about decoding the byte value to the physical probe value is noted within the FITS file header, it is summerised here for your convenience.

  • Barometer: Byte-value + 870 = hPa, resolution 1 hPa.
     
  • Temperature: (Byte-value / 2) - 50 = °C, resolution ½°C.
     
  • Humidity: Byte-value / 2 = %, resolution ½%.
     
  • Wind speed: Byte-value = km/h, resolution = 1 km/h.
     
  • Wind direction: Byte-value x 22.5 = °, resolution 1/16 full circle, 22.5°.

The byte-value 0 is ambiguous. It may mean, no measurement taken or the measured value is zero (e.g. wind speed). Wind direction 0 also means north.
