Daniel's Public Web Sites

Mary writes papers, while Daniel builds Web sites. Take a look at these public Web sites that Daniel has created and you will see a variety of apps. One of them may give you an idea for a custom Web site that you might like to have Daniel build for you.

Free World-wide Hourly Weather Data

Click here to use the Web site that Daniel created to download free hourly weather data from NOAA. First you will find a map of the world that lets you easily locate the weather stations near the area you are interested in. Click on the weather station icons on the map to learn how much weather data is available at each site. When you find the data you want, you can request a download. The hourly weather data will be delivered to you in a zipped .csv format. This is the quickest and easiest way to find and get historical hourly weather data from NOAA. Daniel built it for his own use, but we are happy to share it with others and spread the joy.
