Custom Weather Data Extraction

To generate a custom extraction of data from the BYU Physics and Astronomy weather station, enter the desired date, time, and type of data desired in the form. Also specify the format of the data desired (human-readable text file or tab-delimited spreadsheet file). You can have the data either displayed or emailed to you.

Data are available beginning on 19 February 2000 and running almost continuously through yesterday. If you wish to see the days for which data are not available, check out the Missing and Suspect Data page.

For most dates the available times are in the range of 00:00:00 to 23:59:59. You may select any subset of the available data including multiple consecutive days.

Note that the data are archived once/minute. That means that you will get 1440 lines of data if you ask for a full day. It is possible to specify an interval, in minutes, between the times that are extracted.

If you request a full day of data with all the data types selected, you will receive about a 210K .csv file.

The data can be delivered as either a comma-separated value (csv) file or a reasonably formatted ascii text file that is more human readable. You can also have the file emailed to you or displayed on the screen.

Beginning Day: Month: Year:
Beginning Time: :
The hour must be in the range of 0 to 23 and the minutes in the range of 0 to 59.
Ending Day: Month: Year:
Ending Time: :
The hour must be in the range of 0 to 23 and the minutes in the range of 0 to 59.
Extraction interval: minutes
Select the data to be extracted. More than one data type can be extracted at once. Use shift-click or control-click to select multiple items.
Select the format of the data. The ASCII text file is formatted to be somewhat human readable. The spreadsheet file is appropriate for data to be imported to a spreadsheet program and manipulated. Both file types include headers on the column indicating what is represented and the units. The first two columns are the date and time. The remaining columns are the requested data in the order from the above list.
Set the e-mail address to which the data should be sent. If you wish to have the data just displayed on your screen enter the string "DISPLAY" (case is not significant) for the address.
