I have a PWS (Davis Vantage Pro2) that I maintain and is well calabrated. It is registered with CWOP(Citizen Weather Observer Program) and viewable on the MADIS(Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System) Network. I update every 10 minutes. I do NOT currently report to PWSWeather Network. I have checked to make sure my station is avaible and on the APRSWXNET MEMBERSHIP list. Question… if I choose “Weather Station” my station does not show up as a selection (even zoomed in all the way on the map, considering I’m in the same registered location). Do I need to interface with the PWSWeather Network, or am I considered one of the 300,000+ sources? Then the other question, if I have a really good weather station that I maintain meticulously, is it still better to trust/use other sources for better performance?
Side question… I do web development and have experience with APIs, and being a lazy developer and not wanting to read other developers documentation and always wanting a quick/correct answer… is it possible too directly interact with my Gen3 Rachio if I wrote my own local app and push local data to the device
