Lineage Stanley airport will ask farmers to provide a weather report on wind speed and direction, visibility, rain, pressure and cloud cover (with codes to describe the cloud coverage and the time at which the observation took place) if a plane is scheduled to fly to the settlement. The excel files need to be cleaned and restructured before data can be imported into GIS and analysed. Each settlement is identified by three letters. A file explaining the codes given to each settlement will be provided along with the data.
