Error in Clientraw-file. **solved**

Post by fotogw »

Hi Boris,

There is an error in the Clientraw-file. Since updating to the current version there is a fault in the reporting of the location. This has happened before in dec of 2019, as reported here: viewtopic.php?f=61&t=14559
The error is in position 159 of the Clientraw-file. This is the wet bulb temperature-position. apparently the LAT and LON are moved up a position, so now the LAT (52.290000) is entered as the Wet-bulb value.
The attachment shows my client raw-file as parsed by the parser @saratoga-weather.org; https://saratoga-weather.org/wdparser.php

Kind regards,

Hi Boris,

I narrowed the problem don, as best as i could.
It seems the entry no 140 (gust last min max) is missing (no real data or no hyphen(-) at this position. As soon as i enter a hyphen in this position everything works just fine again.

I hope this helps to solve this. Especially now we (finally...) seem to get some real wintery weather!

Thanks in advance!

I have also recognized some issues in the clientraw file and thus I created my own template which seems to work fine until now.
Very helpful to compare the data is this website: KLICK

thanks for your reply @WETHRE!
Could you tell me how you created the template? Maybe even share the template? Very interested!

Thanks!

Reverted to v.5.0, and now the ClientRaw/WDlive export is normal again. The file is now fully populated, while the latest software only showed just a few values.

I hope this helps in finding the problem!

Issue should be fixed with most recent 5.1.

Thanks for fixing this issue! There is one minor issue left: The WD-Live/Clientraw file does not report the LON correctly. It misses the negative-sign. so in my case it reports my location as 5.57 W instead of the correct 5,57 E, or LON -5.950. My uneducated guess is that the minus symbol should be added :D
Attached the client raw.txt output.

Thanks in advance!

This "Clientraw file does not report the LON correctly." is always a "definition"-problem
=> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decimal_degrees
Meteobridge, 9 out of 10 weather-programs, Google Maps a.o. do it "correctly" by the standard: EAST of 0 = positive, West of 0 is negative.
So newYork has a negative longitude and Moscow, Brussels or "The Veluwe in NL" a positive.

But there are others, such as WeatherDisplay which use the minus the other way around.

And clientraw is originally a WD file, therefor we all should use the WD way of seeing things when generating / using clientraw.
Otherwise the gadgets, apps or scripts we use together with the clientraw files will indeed put us on the other side of the globe.
