Project Description

A tool to collect and serve wind prediction data. Designed to have pluggable backends for multiple wind-prediction services. So far UCAR is the only source and covers just the continental US.


Use pip to install from PyPI:

pip install django-winds

Add django_winds to your file:


Additional Requirements

beautifulsoup4 to parse the XML served by THREDDS

django-tastypie to generate the API

Django Settings

DJANGO_WINDS_CACHE_TIMEOUT - Number of minutes to cache endpoint responses.

DJANGO_WINDS_DEMO_MODE - True/False… not implemented yet.

Acquiring Data

django-winds is really just a extract and transport layer for data. It exposes an API that takes a Point (latitude/longitude) and returns wind predictions for that location.
