Preprocess

The first step in developing the envisioned web app is opening a dataset and preprocessing it!

Get Data

I like to go to https://mesonet.agron.iastate.edu/request/download.phtml?network=WA_ASOS for station data because of the easy-to-use interface and straightforward way to load data.

  1. Select a network

  2. Select stations

  3. Select variables

  4. Select a timezone

  5. Select options

  6. Click “Get Data”
