hdf format file
To get measurements value from different measurments station in the netherlands there is a free datasource that publish the data each 10 minutes.
The file is in hdf format.
Is there a way to get this in to mango ?
this is the link to the file: https://data.knmi.nl/download/Actuele10mindataKNMIstations/1/noversion/2015/04/02/KMDS__OPER_P___10M_OBS_L2.nc
Doesn't look like we have anything that can read the formate. I think a custom data source would need to be developed for this.
it is somekind of international standard for weather
I took a quick look and it appears that this wouldn't be straightforward. The file format is binary so you would need to load the binary data and be able to extract what you want. There appears to be a Native API that can be used:
I took a quick look at the examples and this would require a decent understanding of both Java and the HDF-5 format.
But in theory it could be done.
Hope this helps.
can i just install de java api and then use the contents of that file as a datasource ?
You would need to write a new Data Source Module for Mango using that Api. This will require a Java developer to write the code.
