How to Access the Windy Stations Data

@fabricio-fgs You can use the map and find MADIS stations along with other METAR stations and such. But in order to see a Windy personal station you need to know it's ID or go through some trouble with the API and pull a database dump of personal weather stations and then sift through to find a station ID and then use the Windy map to pull the live station since you now have the ID. Most Windy personal stations also report to MADIS so it shouldn't that big of an issue to instead just pull up the MADIS and then it will tell you that there is a duplicate and then you have at the more timely Windy station ID for that personal station.
It would nice if Windy provided a better method of seeing their stations on the map. Maybe in a future site update, I hope.
Is the first record, the most recent data (actual value?)

@TomSlavkovsky I was not able to successfully get a database dump of weather stations. Everytime I hit this api https://stations.windy.com/pws/stations/myapikey898
I get a 400 bad request error that says "invalid token". I am replacing myapikey898 with my actual api key
Do I need to pass in headers or anything?

@windGoggles you are not using valid API key, please generate your api key on stations.windy.com.

@TomSlavkovsky you were right, the problem was that I was trying to use the same API key that I am using for the api4 chart.
Anyone else that stumbles upon this issue and is having trouble figuring out which key to use, read the following:
The API key that you receive from this URL, https://api4.windy.com/api-key/, will not work. You need instead to go to https://stations.windy.com/stations and click on "show key" in the banner on the bottom of the page. That is the key you need to access the JSON data from the stations.

None of them work, it says “Invalid token” for each one.

Do you ever answer messages?
Hello @windywolf-0, you need to add your station ID and API key to the link.
I've registered my weather station and generated an API Key, but don't know what to do with the key. My weather station reports to Weather Underground and the data is readily available through that portal, but I don't know how to get my data to Windy.
Also, once it's set up, does my station automatically transmit data to Windy?
is there also an option for only getting the most recent measurement?
Hi, please see the related posts about sharing data to Windy - https://community.windy.com/topic/8168/report-your-weather-station-data-to-windy
You can also tell me your station ID.
Hello, your stations are not sharing any data with us. Please check that you have implemented your API key correctly.
is ok now?
Station ID: 1
Elevation: 47 m

Hi, still no progress. Did you add the station ID (in your case 1) to the API key?
