How to input weather data into Max

September 4, 2013 | 4:30 pm

Hello,

So I have this weather data from the McDonald Observatory in West Texas:

http://weather.as.utexas.edu/cgi-bin/latest_5min.cgi

It is coming from this page:

http://snoopy.as.utexas.edu:8080/OS/weather

I information updates every 5 min on the website. I am trying to find an elegant way to import some of the variables (wind speed, temp, etc…) into Max to do some live processing for a piece I am composing. I would like to create a way to do this in real time without having to manually input the values myself.

Does anyone have any suggestion on how best to do this?

Thanks,

Thomas Beverly

Here ya go.. I never did this before so I’m sure there are easier ways, but it seems to work. This approach uses the [jit.uldl] object and updates with [metro] and [date].

Metamax,

You help me with some code last year. I am trying to do a similar thing of getting some weather data into Max, but this time from a more complex site. Could you help me with making sense of the data once it is downloaded into the jit.textfile?

Here is the code:
