DataPoint changes during the week commencing 2 December 2013

The following changes will be made to DataPoint during the week commencing Monday 2 December 2013:

  • The character encoding for XML and JSON will use UTF-8 instead of ISO-8859-1. This change is being made because of problems reported by users with the handling of Gaelic site names where these contain special characters.
  • Update of the Site Specific Forecast Site List with the inclusion of additional sites and site elevation. Further details will be available at UK forecast site list .
  • Additional Site Specific Observation parameters. Further details will be available on our UK observations detailed documentation.

If you experience any problems please let us know as soon as possible by contacting enquiries@metoffice.gov.uk and including DataPoint in the title.
