WiGLE is a popular platform which can be used for finding the location of a device using the names of WiFi networks in its vicinity. I’ve written about this before, and wrote some Python code to interact with their API. This API has since been retired and replaced with a new one, as of December […]
Just a quick post to point out a couple of really useful tools.
The first is a web-based tool for finding weather files for a location of interest.
It’s similar to the Excel EPW finder tool we created a few years back, but much more modern looking. It is however missing a few of the useful features of our tool, so I may take a look at contributing to this repo myself. You can find the tool here and the github repository here.
The second is another web-based visualisation tool for EnergyPlus weather files.
At the moment the tool is limited to a few graphs, including a beautiful wind rose which would look great in a report, as well as drybulb temperature floodplot and cloud cover. It’s an open source project though and so you can suggest or even contribute new types of chart.
I hope these tools are useful for someone, whether for work, personal interest, or just because you’re lookong for an open source project to contribute to.
