In the world of weather stations there is a lot of cooperation and exchange of
information. Below is a random, and not exhaustive, list of commercial
organizations and associations where Mid-South Weather may share data. This
station shares our data on these websites, if the first few
words of each paragraph appear as a link. The organization’s website can
be reached by clicking on their logo. Mid-South weather at that partner‘s
site can be seen by using the
text link at the very
beginning of the partner’s description.
AWEKAS is an acronym for
System (= automatic weather map system) and is,
as the name suggests, a system which produces overview maps from the
weather data provided by participating private weather stations.
The data is made available to AWEKAS by the weather station operators who
upload a small text or CSV file to their own website. AWEKAS then collects
this data automatically, and processes it to provide up-to-date maps.
AWEKAS works automatically and provides every second current maps about
temperature, wind, precipitation, barometric pressure, and maps with
current weather conditions and weather warnings.
Participation is entirely free.
is a group of ham radio operators and other private citizens mostly around
the USA that have volunteered the use of their weather data for education,
research and use by interested parties.
It is a public-private partnership with three main goals:
- to collect weather data contributed by citizens;
- to make these data available for weather services and homeland
- to provide feedback to the data contributors so that they have the
tools to check and improve their data quality.
In fact, the web address, wxqa.com, stands for weather quality assurance.
