UNSOLVED Stations misplaced
Hello, I'd like to know if is there a way to contact a station or report a station misplaced.
Station 08287, station 08290 and station 08282 have the longitude wrong, they are placed east, but their real longitude is west. The number is correct, the sign is on the contrary.
@pinchof Those stations are part of the WMO network of weather stations. Each country is assigned a number range. Those stations you pointed out are for Spain. I believe this agency (link below) is in charge of management of these stations. This information may be incorrect. But if it is incorrect at least you'll know that they are part of the WMO and perhaps you can further search and chase that down to see whom to contact in Spain.
Before carrying further search in Spain and trying to contact someone there, don’t you think that Windy developers should first check if the coordinates of these stations are wrong or correct in their database? And in any case it is not up to @pinchof to clarify this issue !
@idefix37 Of course Windy should comment on this matter after they look at this. The fact that this is posted here should have been notice enough. I've not looked into theses WMO stations and perhaps they are in the wrong place elsewhere to begin with and Windy just imported what was reported to them. I think pinchof should at least look into that and let everyone know. I don't know where the problem is. If these stations can be found in the correct location in other databases external to Windy then I would say it is a Windy issue and then there would be no need to contact anyone but Windy. But if Windy ignores this issue then you go the other way and get that organization to contact Windy and ask them why they have misplaced their stations. Sometimes you need to stir the pot to get noticed.
Hello, thank you for your replies.
It looks to me that AEMET (Spanish agency) has it right.
This is the result of a query to AEMET's Open Data Rest API
"idema" : "8058X",
"lon" : -0.095837,
"fint" : "2019-04-22T11:00:00",
"prec" : 2.8,
"alt" : 5.0,
"vmax" : 8.4,
"vv" : 2.8,
"dv" : 301.0,
"lat" : 38.928886,
"dmax" : 336.0,
"ubi" : "OLIVA",
"tamin" : 12.2,
"ta" : 12.6,
"tamax" : 12.6,
"rviento" : 117.0
The discrepancy between AEMET -0.095837 (0º 5' 45.0132") and Windy 0º 5' 44" suggests me that Windy is using another source.
We use this source
and this source
any help to find some more actual source?
Well I cant find these stations at this WMO list
Maybe they don't belong to WMO network any more, I don't know how this works. But they belong to AEMET's network (with other IDs) and can be consulted throw AEMET OpenData API if it's any help.
