Show stations by SKIN
« on: July 26, 2015, 11:51:32 AM »
It's possible to see which hardware is used by which WEEWX stations on a map of the world (here: http://www.weewx.com/stations.html).

It would be nice also to be able to filter by SKIN -- for those that are not reporting to Wunderground etc. (of course one can search for sites using Google).

sorting by skin might be quite a challenge.  how would you detect each skin?  how would you distinguish between an unmodified skin and a customized skin?

however, please have another look at the weewx world map:

http://weewx.com/stations.html

it now includes a thumbnail of the web page (if available) for each station when you click on that station on the map.  you can also see all of the thumbnails when you scroll the list of stations.

That's great! Thanks. I have an annotated list of stations using WeeWX with some interesting notes about the skin mods made.

BTW couldn't the station report the skin name just as it reports the WeeWX version number and other things. Modified could be a Y/N flag?
