Get archived data

If you have the Surface Archives or Upper Archives disc sets from Weather Graphics Technologies, you can use this option to retrieve data on the disc instantly. Digital Atmosphere will decompress and ingest the desired datasets, enabling you to plot maps of any date and time between 1961 and 1990 (and earlier and later in some cases).

In the above example, we've specified that we want data for September 4, 1972 at 1700 UTC (Greenwich Mean Time). It is assumed that the Surface Archives 1961-73 disc is in the drive (if the wrong disc is in the drive, you will get an error). Once the "Import" item is selected, the data will be imported. You can then use commands such as Data > Plots and Analysis > Sea Level Pressure to view the data.
