GFS Forecasts 0.25° automatic Access

Last update: June 2017

 

Automatic access

Even if the data provided by NCEP are for free, we need to dimension our servers to welcome the large number of automatic requests. A fee is thus applied depending on the number of time series retrieved every day / month. Please for a quotation.

Automatic requests with a time step below 10 min are limited to one month, and automatic requests with a time step below one day limited to one year (identical to HelioClim-3 automatic request behavior).

Here is an example of automatic access using the wget command:  
wget -O SoDa_GFS_Carpentras.csv --header="soda-user: guest" --header="soda-passwd: guest" ...
"http://www.soda-is.com/pub/gfs_request.php?geopoint=44.083,5.059&firstday=2017-01-01& ...
lastday=2017-01-05&duration=h
"
