Each observed element (e.g. Temperature, pressure or wind direction) must be defined in the Clidata system.
For the definition of the meteorological or other elements this simple form is used.
This form defines the abbreviation and the name of the observed element, short description, unit, scale and the specification of automatic calculations.
Among these belong the definitions of the monthly and yearly data calculations. It's possible to define functions for calculation of maximum, minimum, sum, average and conditional day count.
The system carries out the calculations automatically in real time, thus the calculated data are available nearly immediately.
Specifically for legacy Clicom users, there is the definition of the conversion relationship between new Clidata element and old Clicom element.
