What data is expected?

3-day forecasts of temperature, precipitation and wind. Forecasts have to be provided for several regions in the country. Short-term weather forecasts are relevant for the general public to plan activities, while also being reliable. See our methodology section for more information.

  • Temperature extremes
  • Temperature average
  • Wind speed
  • Wind direction
  • Precipitation Amount
  • Precipitation Probability
  • Forecast for current day and four following days

How open is the data?

Can't download data, only check html of the reports and pdf of predictions

There is a portal allowing to see (not download) all required characteristics (see here: http://www.senamhi.gob.pe/main_mapa.php?t=dHi). This portal is outdated, the data refer to April 2015, and the link to the terms and use section is broken. Data for the current data can be seen here: http://www.senamhi.gob.pe/?p=1201_dr03 All data is available online, however split across different sites and in different formats. Wind forecasts are available for current day + 2 days, but only as wind barbs drawn on a map. The reviewer recommends to lower the findability-score of the data, since the data are split across places. Also some data would need to be retrieved and processed manually (such as non-machine-readable wind barb maps) to reuse them. Therefore the usability score should be lower. Thank you, Oscar Montiel, for contributing to the Global Open Data Index.
