Meteo Browser South Tyrol
A Shiny App to download the meteorological time series from the Open Data - Province of Bozen
To run the application install the package:
if(!require(devtools)) install.packages("devtools") devtools::install_github("GiulioGenova/MeteoBrowser")
and then use the function run_app
A stable online version is available here:
Once selected the stations and measurements (also possible to draw a polygon on the map) and chosen a date range, you are ready to download (the dataset available refers to the last three years). When download is complete, a "save" icon pops up and you can choose to save a csv or a json file. You can choose between different time aggregations. "raw" preserves the timestamp of the sensor you are downloading (usually 5 or 10 minutes). For the other time aggregation options you will get different statistics for each measurement in the selected timespan.
In the "Readme" page of the application you will find further information about the app and the data source.
