ID and Names of all of Glasgow's Weather Stations

Data extracted from the MET Office using the Datapoint API and gives the names, ID codes, elevation (m) and locations of Glasgow's weather stations (lat/long WGS 84). Each station will have different capabilities and the MetOffice Datapoint API's can be used to ascertain which services are available at which station.

The MET Office Datapoint API can provide forecast data as well as actual weather observations. The API can extract site specific data which can be presented in a number of formats including text, map overlays and charts. The Met Office provides an API Reference - which is a consolidated guide for using the DataPoint API and its products. A portable document file is also available and icluded with this dataset.

The Met Office has a large range of freely available products relating to weather and climate but each user must register to receive an API key.
