Wind speed resolution

Kevin Mooney Apr 02, 2019 08:40PM BST

I was disappointed to see that the wind speed in my bulk history download was in integer values of m/s.
This gives a pretty low resolution. Is this how the data is uploaded to your database? Or could I get better resolution by downloading in mph (if possible)?
Have you any idea if it is rounded down, or to the nearest whole value?

Hello Kevin,

Thank you for request.

Wind speed transmitted by weather stations in meters/second. So, values in mph are converted from m/s value.
