Easy analysis of Weather Display data logs?

    I now have about 12 years of data from a couple of stations - all received and stored using Weather Display (WD). When looking at current data I often wonder e.g. when was the temperature last this cold / warm? When did we last have this much rain, what were the extremes this day last year? etc. The only way I know to answer those types of question is to trawl through the NOAA monthly reports function which is very time consuming. Does anyone know if someone has developed a simple analysis tool for WD data that allows those sorts of queries to be created / run on the WD dataset?

    Update: I asked this question on the Weather Display user forum and a couple of people have created their own database & SQL queries to answer these sorts of questions. Then Brian Hamilton, the smart guy who created / maintains WD in New Zealand, popped in and suggested it would be a good feature to add to WD. Happy Days! I'll keep you posted.

    Hi there

    I am a Cumulus MX user. It has the ability to create SQL databases and add data to them at various intervals selected by the user, as well as at rollover times.

    A few folks have created scripts to call upon that data which can then be presented in to highcharts.

    Here's my data:

    https://warehamwx.co.uk/graphs_historic.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/graphs_recent.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/graphs_climate.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/graphs_monthly.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/windrose_gust.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/windrose_speed.php
    https://warehamwx.co.uk/heatmap.php

    It's all automatically updated through the day, or just after midnight. Once set up, I don't have to do anything.

    Brian Hamilton has created a new icon on a beta version of WD that covers my queries - works great! Hope to see it in a future live release. Great result and super-responsive.

    For WD users this is now incorporated into the latest production release. 'View' - 'Last Time It Was Almanac'. Great stuff!
