weather location

Post by babisxt » Sat Oct 17, 2009 4:39 pm

I would like to ask you why do you remove all major cities including Volos in Greece
and only remains several locations around Athens?
Athens is not the only place in Greece.
Please add Volos in the weather locations
Thank you

babisxt, sorry, I know about this problem.
It relates to Greece only.
Bad luck :(
The problem occured in the recent geonames data-base.
I have already written an email to them for advice.
We will fix this problem within a week.
Sorry.

Well, YoWindow takes current weather from the airports.
The closer the airport to your location, the closer the weather in YoWindow to the actual weather.
Unfortunately at the moment we have this limitation.
In the future we are going to take current weather from the personal weather stations to provide you with more accurate weather reports.

This remark relates to current weather only.
The forecasts are provided by yr.no service and from my experience they are very precise.

babisxt, good news!
Now you have an access to much more many Greece locations including Athens and Volos!
Geonames guy Marc fixed the mistake in the database.

You are welcome!
Do you know is your weather station capable of providing information in a computer-friendly format, like XML?
