wis2box is designed to support data ingest and processing of any kind. For observations, processing workflow typically requires station metadata to be present at runtime.
To manage your stations of interest, create a CSV file named
specifying one line per station as follows:
station_name,wigos_station_identifier,traditional_station_identifier,facility_type,latitude,longitude,elevation,territory_name,wmo_region BALAKA,0-454-2-AWSBALAKA,AWSBALAKA,Land (fixed),-14.983333,34.966666,618,Malawi,I BENI-ABBES,0-20000-0-60602,60602,Land (fixed),30.12846,-2.14953,510,Algeria,I IN-GUEZZAM,0-20000-0-60690,60690,Land (fixed),19.56388,5.74887,399,Algeria,I MALOMO,0-454-2-AWSMALOMO,AWSMALOMO,Land (fixed),-13.14202,33.83727,1088,Malawi,I
This CSV file is used by wis2box data processing pipelines and is required before starting automated processing.
run the command
wis2box metadata station publish-collection to
publish your stations as a collection to the wis2box API
At this point, you have cached the required station metadata for your given dataset(s).
