The service provides access to data from North Carolina's Climate Retrieval and Observation Network of the Southeast (CRONOS), a record collected and maintained by the state of weather observation data from the surrounding region. It is intended to eliminate concerns with database structure and query syntax needed to interact with the database directly. Instead it provides URL-based access to particular chunks of data.
API methods support retrieval of weather observation data in plain text for a specified collection station and date range. Methods also allow specification of observation intervals desired -- minute-by-minute, hourly, or daily -- and application of quality control checks.
