Hi I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. I'm doing a flood modelling project for the local community and need access to daily temp, max min and rainfall for my area in shropshire. tried met office, EA and CEDA. There are loads of access restrictions. Does anyone know where I can get this data? Thanks in advance
ZONE 51 posted a topic in The LoungeWhat is a Gigabyte of data worth? Data - 1G = 1000MB (megabytes) I feel that the pay as you go broadband companies should re-access what 1 G is worth these days, it goes far quicker than it used to doing pretty much the same thing (my own experience) all though this would vary a bit each time. I can't really play videos this takes the credit to quick, depends on how much I've topped up, but that's just the point I need to put quite a lot on to feel relaxed and play the YouTube vids (for example) with out credit worries compared to those on unlimited pay monthly broadband for the same amounts of cost(Â£Â£..) per month - I am moving over to this at some point, but a laptop dongle is portable and can take the lappy anywhere and have a connection (mostly...) not only this you can load a dongles software program into any computer and run it on there, we pay more for the extra conveniences of that I feel. A lot of web pages are larger these days although chat forums do a good job to minimize this problem. But my point and question is should we get more Gigabytes per Â£1? A tip from me here to lower data usage on PAYG for those on a computer/bigger device: Example - When on a news site home page open each story as a new tab, close the tap after, this way the home page is staying open to go back to after closing a page, this way you're not reloading the home page every time you read a new page by usually pressing the back button to go back to home page, this is costing you credit. Opening new tabs from a website can save credit. ( I don't do this on https/padlock sites though )
