metaf2xml can download, parse and decode aviation routine weather reports (METAR, SPECI, SAO), aerodrome forecasts (TAF), synoptic observations (SYNOP), observations from buoys (BUOY) and meteorological reports from aircrafts (AMDAR). Data can also be taken from decoded BUFR messages. The extracted data can be written as XML or passed to a user-defined function (all done in Perl). It also provides XSLT style sheets to convert the XML to plain language (text, HTML), or XML with different schemas. A web-based (CGI) user interface can be used to download and display up-to-date weather data from NOAA, Ogimet, and other sources.

Features

  • gain as much information as possible from a message without interpreting parts of it wrongly
  • write message contents as XML, no parsing of items in the XML file should be necessary
  • provide XSLT to transform XML to plain language, as HTML or text
  • provide text-based and graphical web interface, and command line interface
