stationaRy (R package)

stationaRy by Richard Iannone.

From the webpage:

Get hourly meteorological data from one of thousands of global stations.

Want some tools to acquire and process meteorological and air quality monitoring station data? Well, you’ve come to the right repo. So far, because this is merely the beginning, there’s only a few functions that get you data. These are:

  • get_ncdc_station_info
  • select_ncdc_station
  • get_ncdc_station_data

They will help you get the hourly met data you need from a met station located somewhere on Earth.

I’m old school about the weather. I go outside to check on it. 😉

But, my beloved is interested in earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, weather, etc. so I track resources for those.

Some weather conditions lend themselves more to some activities than others. As Hitler discovered in the winter of 1943-44. Weather can help or hinder your plans, whatever those may be.

You may like the Farmer’s Almanac, but it isn’t a good source for strategic weather data. Try stationaRy.

If you know of any unclassified military strategy guides that cover collection and analysis of weather data, give me a shout.
