As I start this thread, a lot of people are experiencing what I'd call fragility with Weather Underground. I've been posting to WU most of this decade. For me it begged the question of what are the pros and cons of the alternatives available. Cumulus MX natively supports a variety of options:
- Weather Underground
- PWS Weather
- Met Office WOW
If I understand the way the forum is sometimes used, I believe I can alter this initial post and add pointers to other sources of information as we come across them. Here's a start...
- Sharing a Station - Brief page touching on several options.
- at System.Net.WebConnection.HandleError (this forum) - the thread in which I started thinking about this one. Maybe this is temporary to get this listing started with something. There PaulMy mentioned his experience briefly with all of these!
- To share or not to share: Drivers and barriers for sharing data via online amateur weather networks - This is really an academic paper, which doesn't actually compare existing options, but lists a number for reference. It may be interesting if you want to take a giant step back from the more specific intent of this thread.
I'll post what I learn as I tinker with some of these options in hopes others may find the discussion useful!
