5 thoughts on “How to Get Environment Canada Climate Station ID From Name”
I think the admin of this website is genuinely working hard for his web site, because here every data is quality based information.
Good points. They may change the protocal without any notice.
How can I find these StationIDs for all major Canadian cities. These are not WMO IDs for sure. This is very confusing as I can’t find StationIDs anywhere.
Can you help me with these StationsIDs ??
Thanks in advance 🙂
The station I’m using could be found by download the station.csv file in the zip file. The download link is https://environment-canada-climate-data-reader.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Doc/Versions/ECReader1.1.zip. That’s all the stations. You may need to choose the ones you want from them.
Please let me know if this information is enough.
This is very helpful – thank-you for posting this. It seems the link to the station.csv file has expired (https://environment-canada-climate-data-reader.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Doc/Versions/ECReader1.1.zip), but the approach suggested for looking in the URL still works.
