micro.windguru.cz HELP

To request a forecast create the URL with appropriate parameters.

For specific spot and model use the "s" as ID of the spot and "m" as ID or acronym of the model (list of models below). Example: GFS model forecast for Maui (spot ID=53):

http://micro.windguru.cz/?s=53&m=gfs

To get forecast for all available models for given spot, enter "m=all":

http://micro.windguru.cz/?s=53&m=all

PRO users can also request forecast for any latitude / longitude by using "lat" and "lon" parameters. As this is only available to PRO users you also need to add your username as "u" and your secondary password as "p". (You need to setup your secondary password in windguru account settings, see settings -> login). We don't use your main account passwords here because using this service via e.g. Saildocs email service would not be secure, you probably don't want to send your main passwords by mail anywhere... Example: GFS model forecast for lat 29.5, lon -49.3 (user 'wgtest'):

http://micro.windguru.cz/?lat=29.5&lon=-49.3&m=gfs&u=wgtest&p=SECONDPASSWORD

The dates in lat/lon forecasts are displayed in UTC timezone by default, you can specify other timezone by adding "tz" parameter. Example: set timezone to UTC-3:

http://micro.windguru.cz/?lat=29.5&lon=-49.3&m=gfs&u=wgtest&p=SECONDPASSWORD&tz=-3

You can also detect the timezone automatically with "tz=auto":

http://micro.windguru.cz/?lat=29.5&lon=-49.3&m=gfs&u=wgtest&p=SECONDPASSWORD&tz=auto

By default the forecasts display all available variables, but you can choose only some using "v" parameter (list of variables below). Example: GFS for Maui, wind / direction / gusts only:

http://micro.windguru.cz/?s=53&m=gfs&v=WSPD,WDIRN,GUST
