I presented open Hong Kong weather data project hk0weather and Hong Kong air quality data project hkaqhi at OpenDataHK.make.03 presentation tonight.
I showed the Django CMS admin UI of both projects to 30+ audiences.
In last month, rainfall data is added to hk0weather project, and REST API for air pollution data of latest hour or specified hour (date/time), and last 24 hours of air pollution data from a single station.
Both projects are released in open source at GitHub, you can install and use it freely.
Anyone who are interested to above projects, demonstration, open data or web scraping, please feel freely to contact with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In Hong Kong, weather data is not ready for open, only 7 RSS feeds of latest news/updates from different weather reports are available on Data.One. which I presented at BarCampHK 2013, and announced my open source project hk0weather to be an interim solution of Hong Kong Open Weather Data.
hk0weather provides few open source web scrapers and parsers to scrap Hong Kong Observatory web pages, and parse data into useful machine readable data format.
Last week, I made parsed weather data stored to Django, so we can read data on Django web admin. And Hong Kong rainfall data is added to hk0weather early this week.
You are welcome to contact with me to look at demonstrations and develop your own front-end to use data produced by my software.
