Outdoor air quality data
Fetch outdoor air quality data from multiple resources, the system is made of the following components:
- fetching: fetches resources to create the raw material for air quality data. That material is saved to create a history and possibility to fix errors after the fact.
- data extraction: extract the data from the raw material to create data feeds.
- data reliability: determine which data source is the most reliable at any given time.
The data flow from online resource to reliable data point is broken down as follow:
- sources: online resources that provide the data, polled at regular interval and cached for archive purpose
- feeds: extracted data from sources, feeds are saved as time series in a database
- datapoint: extracted from feeds using an election algorithm to provide the most reliable data
The default local configuration file is okqconfig.py, this can be changed using the environment variable OKQ_CONFMODULE. The okqconfig.py file should define a dict called settings, this dict can be used to overwrite any configuration option defined in the global_settings of openkongqi.conf.
Each station needs to be attached to a unique identier, a station identifier is of the following formats:
CC/STATION CC/CITY/STATION CC/STATE/CITY/STATION
