Weather Stations application
Direct access to SAWS weather stations
Are you tired of waiting for weather data when you really need it? The Weather Station application allows direct access to actual and historical time series from the automatic weather stations of the South African Weather Service. You can access this data from behind your desk. The application automatically collects large amounts of gauge data from SAWS and makes it accessible via Internet. Just select the period, the stations and variables you are interested in. Press the button and you will automatically receive the requested information as a graph, picture or in an Excel file.
With the interactive dashboard, the latest information (last day, last week, last month, last year) from the selected gauges will be presented. It is also possible to present more gauges in one graph to get insight into the spatial variation. The Weather Stations Application contains the following functionality:
- Selection of period
- Selection of station(s)
- Selection of variables
- Interactive dashboard: compare rain gauges and presentation of real-time data.
- Download time series for any SAWS gauge
- Export time series charts to images (PNG, SVG, JPEG) or an Excel file (CSV).
