After a good time gap i tried to generate an AMY file for a city. I accessed the NOAA website (https://gis.ncdc.noaa.gov/maps/ncei/cdo/hourly) to generate the required txt files as the modified AMY component requires .txt file as input.
But the NOAA format has again changed the way we used to download by clicking on access button (now add to cart option popping out).
You know this plugin for creating AMY file has bug
even old data type of NOAA couldn’t work !!!
me and my friends try in different versions and systems.
but it didn’t work.
i hope @chris fix this issue soon.
we really need this ability of dragonfly
I’m sorry for such a late response here but I’m very glad that you found a temporary solution. I’ll try to add methods to handle the new NOAA format soon but, if anyone is feeling brave enough, you should be able to get it to work with < 100 lines of Python code using the ladybug-core Python library that is already being used in the current AMY component.
And you can work with the ladybug library either with native python (installing it with ladybug-core) or you can simply type import ladybug in a GHPython component if you already have honeybee[+] installed.
I haven’t changed the AMY-data-importing component yet and I probably won’t be able to get to it for another couple of weeks. So the opportunity is open if anyone wants to tackle it. It’s a good task if anyone’s looking to learn how to use the ladybug Python SDK.
Hello @chris. I tested the file but an error popped up with DF_Creat_EPW_Component. I have attached the screenshot and the updated file with latest LBT components to keep files similar for testing. Please have a look.
Hey @Asisnath ,
As I was falling asleep last night, I realized that there’s a bug in how I was interpreting the new AMY data. I’m 99% sure that all of the datetimes in the csv file are in GMT now instead of the time zone of the location recording the data. I’ll push a fix this morning (that is, morning in EDT and not GMT) and verify that it’s correct. Glad that I caught this one before the release.
