Join Patrick Royal for an in-depth discussion in this video My solution: Getting data, part of Code Clinic: Java.
…The first task we need to accomplish in order to complete…this Code Clinic is to get the data that we will use.…As I mentioned in the introduction, the data is stored at lpo.dt.navy.mil.…So let's go there now just to see what the data format looks like.…This website contains a lot of different information for…both the Deep Moor and the Yellow Barge sensors.…These weather buoys are constantly gathering data about the air conditions…at their location, including wind speed, air temperature, sunlight, and more.…On the right, there is a webcam that takes…a picture of the station outpost every 60 seconds.…
We could try to get the data directly from this homepage,…but the problem is that it has a lot of formatting.…It require lots of specialized code to get this data and if…the format of this webpage were…ever changed, our solution wouldn't work anymore.…Instead, let's click on the Raw Data link.…This brings us to a much more standard…file structure with all of the relevant data listed.…We're looking for the Deep Moor weather data, so let's click on that.…
