findable_steps Looked up data.norge.no. Know the URL for api.met.no by heart. For me, working with open data, it's somewhat annoying to have this question be compulsory :)
licence_url http://data.norge.no/data/meteorologisk-institutt/værda CC-BY and NLOD
Collected by government Yes
usability 2 This criteria is vaguely defined. Some examples of what constitutes "extensive" and what constitutes "some" etc.
collector_name Norwegian Meteorological Institute
characteristics Temperature extremes, Temperature average, Wind speed, Wind direction, Precipitation Amount, Forecast for current day and four following days Unsure what is meant with "Temperature extremes" and "Temperature average". Should be covered in the data. See documentation and try one of the Usage samples to inspect XML: http://api.met.no/weatherapi/locationforecast/1.9/documentation
location http://data.norge.no/data/meteorologisk-institutt/v%C3% - Entry on national open data portal (data.norge.no), http://api.met.no/ - api.met.no, http://api.met.no/weatherapi/locationforecast/1.9/docum - API documentation for the available forecast data
Would be a very useful feature to be able to populate this form with data from last year, and then review that the entries are still correct.

The submission is valid. Thank you, Livar Bergheimivar, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
