      Isn't this true for Weather Underground also?
      Again, it doesn't matter to me. CWOP/MADIS is using our data for good
      things which is right but......... ... whatever.

      BTW The new PWS layout is excellent especially the history and graft
      or charting layouts REALLY appeal.

      Thanks
      Regards, Bob

      anythingweather. com. This is something they started doing within the
      last year. Data being provided, by station owner permission, through
      the weatherforyou. com program (now PWSweather.com) started years
      before that when that was the only source of personal weeather station
      data at the time. We insist the use of data through PWSweather.com
      requires Anything Weather to include credit to the contributing
      station where ever the data is used, which is extra work on their end.
      Getting the data through MADIS doesn't have this requirement. I'm
      not sure why Anything Weather is still using data from us. Since we
      don't receive or require anything ourselves it doesn't matter one way
      or another to us. We just do it to whoever wants it so personal
      weather stations can have a wider distribution (as long as the
      contributing station gets credit).
