Select a set of stations: name, geographical location, id
There are four ways to select a set of stations from a dataset
(selected above). The first non-blank field is used.
- By name: all stations with the substring given are selected. Note
that almost all stations names have been reduced to plain latin
characters without accents, so searching for stations outside the UK
or US somtimes requires some phantasy.
- By approximate coordinates: N stations (default 10)
around a point on the map are returned. Please enter degrees west
or south as negative numbers, if necessary with a decimal fraction
(minutes and seconds are not recognised). Alternatively you can
obtain the coordinates by clicking on a world map (follow the link).
- All stations in a rectangle, again use negative numbers for
degrees west or south.
- A list of station numbers. This can be useful if you want to
exclude some stations that are included in the rectangle above.
The set can be restricted by the number of years with data, the
altitude, and the distance between stations
Once a set of stations has been selected you can select a single
station or operate on the whole set.
