Open Source Tools für die Wetterabfrage

fsx_commwMarcus schreibt uns: “Es gibt mittlerweile immer mehr kleinere Opene Source Tools, die auch für den virtuellen Flieger interessant sind. Heute gab’s eine neue Version von metaf2xml: “metaf2xml parses and decodes aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), and BUOY observations and stores the data as XML. XSLT style sheets convert it to plain language, as HTML or text. Current weather data from NOAA and other sources can be fetched and displayed.”

Oder auch avt: “avt is a collection of command line tools for aviation. They allow you to get METARs, TAFs, sunrise and sunset, and geo info, and decode IATA/ICAO airports, airline codes, aircraft tail codes, and aircraft names.””
