metaf2xml can download, parse, and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations, and store the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.
WDB is a weather data storage system for storage of weather and water observations, forecasts, analysis fields, and models. The system should be compatible with the meteorological standards BUFR and GRIB (version 1 and 2). In addition to generic loading programs, WDB also features a flexible retrieval interface for retrieving weather data in time series or entire fields. WDB is built using PostgreSQL extended with PostGIS.
HOYRESPIRO is software developed for PEOPLE, a project promoting "smart cities" through rapid implementation, deployment, and uptake of innovative Internet-based services to face present challenges and improve future quality of life. HOYRESPIRO, developed for the pilot city of Bilbao, provides citizens with geo-referenced information about the air quality in and around the city, the pollen levels, the weather forecast, and weather information (updated every 10 minutes). It uses the existing network for environmental control of the city and the indicators developed with the data collected. The network consists of weather stations which measure atmospheric variables related to pollution and levels of pollen in the air.
