The challenge:

Update the information in the National Database of Mexico's National Weather Service.

The solution:

We created a data capture system that integrated into a single database weather variables from 1970 to 2005 in 1981 and SMN/82 formats; recovery of missing data from hourly registers and 15-minute data from the corresponding graphs, for integration into the CLICOM data base. In one year we were able to digitize and make available all weather variables gathered in Mexican observatories, allowing for greater use of this valuable historical information.
