A NEW CLIMATE & HOURLY DATA DELIVERY SYSTEM PROVIDING GLOBAL SUPPORT FOR PRECISION MODELING AND CONTROL
John L. Keller, Charles A. Khuen
The need for precision data to support building perfor- mance is growing exponentially, yet the quality and availability of weather data has not changed in decades. We present a new online weather data service with im- mediate access to precision, localized weather history, current conditions and forecasts. The localized weather is created by integrating all available ground station observations with high-resolution datasets from NOAA from 1/1979 through seven-day forecasts. The system also accepts input from on-site private sensor(s). It is designed to support modeling and on-going monitoring, predicted vs. actual performance and to enable advanc- es in monitoring and predictive control. The quality of the output has been verified in comparisons with sites with multiple weather stations.
