hi there,

i'm creating my own weather file for kabhoul area with a mixture
of interpolated data i got from a meteorological institute and
output from meteonorm.

my question is what time zone is used within the weather files
for ecotect? the data from the met institute is utc, i don't know
about the meteonorm output.

do i need to shift data to kabhoul time zone?

i hope someone can clear this up to me. thanks in advance,

Time in ecotect and weatool is local standard time. If your location is not within GMT(UTC), you must shift time to your local standard time.

Hi Fakeson,

I am trying to create my own weather data files readable in ecotect but I could not find a best result file.

Would you please tell me how I can made my own weather files with good result.

What is the website I can get weather files and how can I interpolate?

Best Regards and thanks.
