Old Weather Data
« on: October 01, 2019, 04:21:47 PM »
I found "old" weather data in my VWS (Virtual Weather Station) files that I don't think are recorded in any "cloud" data.
Is it possible to import this old data into WL?  I just started using it, so I don't know much about what it can or cannot do.
Below I will paste some summary data from 2011, when I got my first weather station...

Thank you, and that would be great.
How do I find this?   I googled it and nothing came up. :sad:

I'm afraid this software may be defunct?

Thank you, I did find it!

Well, it doesn't include a lot of instructions.  Not sure how to proceed.  I know how to navigate/browse to the NOAA summary data in my VWS file, but how to connect it to WL file is not really clear to me.
Any suggestions appreciated if you are familiar with this software.
I'm a far cry from an IT Professional.

If anyone familiar with this software would be willing to "Team Viewer" into my Windows PC and show me, I would be be happy to welcome you.

Export your old records to a CSV file and use the Bulk Import feature to load them into WLK files.

Thank you.  I never heard of a CSV file of course.  But I read that it includes "Notepad".  So I should be able to open the VWS "data" folder in Notepad and then use bulk importer?

I know zip about VWS file formats, but don't use Windows Notepad - it can mess things up.  Use Notepad++  (freeware) instead.  https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/
