Loading Data From Text Files
The import of formatted text files is built into Clidata. The user defines their own method for each of the import text file types. The definition of the import method is very flexible and allows a wide range text file formats. After the creation of the import method the user sets up a, so called, import job to carry out loading at regular intervals.
The import system is so flexible that all data in Czech Republic are imported by means of this system. Different kinds of the data are imported: daily data observed by observers and measured by automatic stations or data from the international exchange (the SYNOP messages), meteorological phenomena, one minute precipitation data etc.
