METEO SERVICES

METAR / TAF READER AND DECODER

The service allows you to insert one or more METARs / TAFs, to load them from the Internet and to show their translations in a easily comprehensible language. There is a database containing all the airports that allows you to easily find the ICAO airports code. It even shows some additional information concerning the Italian airports.
It is also possible to show the weather condition and the METARs / TAFs in Google Earth.
You can call the page by using the following parameters to be able to quickly retrieve the METARs / TAFs for the ICAO codes and which service to use.
The parameters used are:

  • icao=XXXX - where XXXX is the ICAO code (you can enter multiple codes separated by a space);
  • service=X - where X is the service code (between 1 and 16);
  • tokens=yes - to print the tokens;
  • decode=yes - to load and decode the METAR / TAF.
  • timezone=XX.YY - XX is the time zone hours offset, from 00 to 12 with optional first 0 for values less than 10. Offset may have a negative value (-XX.YY). YY is the time zone decimal hour offset, from 00 to 99, though in practice only 00, 25, 50, 75 decimal hour offsets are used in global timezones.

METAR READER AND DECODER OFF LINE

The program allows you to insert a Metar, to load it from a disk or from the Internet and to show his translation in a easily comprehensible language. There is a database containing all the airports that allows you to easily find the ICAO airport code. It treats even some particular added information for the Italian airports. The Metar translation can be associated to a visualization that offers an immediate comprehension of interesting values. You can keep under observation more than one Metar. Integrating by this sofware with Flight Simulator you can see the Metar close to the plane. It is also possible to transfer the weather conditions in Flight Simulator 2004 or show the Metars in Google Earth.
