WXSIM Field names with their "description" as found in WXSIM data files

English: Explanation

  • First column contains the field name as used in the scripts
  • Second column contains unit type used.
  • Column "lastret.txt contains the field names as used by WRET => lastret.txt output, not all fields are present in your own lastret.txt.
  • Column "latest.csv contains the field names as contained in latest.csv, normally all fields should be present when using the professional version.
  • You can sort the table on column 1-4 by clicking in the heading.
    • First click descending
    • Second click ascending.

Nederlands: Toelichting

  • De eerste kolom bevat de naam zoals gebruikt in de scripts
  • De tweede kolom bevat de UOM, de maat eenheid
  • Kolom "lastret.txt bevat de veldnamen zoals gebruikt door de lastret.txt output generatie, niet alle velden zijn aanwezig in iedere lastret.txt omdat het aantal velden beperkt is.
  • Kolom "latest.csv calle veldnamen uit het latest.csv bestand (=backup laatste forecast), alle velden komen voor als u een professional version hebt van WXSIM.
  • De tabel kan gesorteerd worden op kolom 1-4 door te klikken op een kolomkop.
    • Eerste klik sorteert aflopend
    • Tweede klik oplopend.

Total number of known field-names (2017-07-16) = 79. Of which 8 are missing for lastret.txt and 6 for latest.csv.
Any help to rectify this is appriciated.
