What is "Wetterturnier"
The "Berliner Wetterturnier" as it has been known as in the beginning was launched in the year 2000 at the Institute of Meteorology at the FU Berlin. Since 2005 five cities in Central Europe are included.
Wetterturnier is a platform where hobby meteorologists, experts and statistical forecast model developer battle against each other. The goal is to predict a set of meteorological variables, such as sunshine duration, wind speed, or temperature as good as possible for the consecutive two days.
This plugin is the frontend core of the whole system providing full wordpress integration (user management, messaging services, forums) and the platform where our users can submit their forecasts/bets. Furthermore this plugin provides live ranking tables, a leader-board, a data archive, and access to a set of important data sets such as observations and forecast maps.
Please note that this is only one part of the system. To get the whole system running the Wetterturnier backend is needed which prepares the observations, computes mean bets for specific groups, and computes the points for the ranking system.
