TAF XML Output Data Format
The TAF XML output has an XML schema
Each row of TAF data is returned as a separate 'TAF' tag, followed by the
TAF fields. Any fields that appear to be missing are either not reported in the TAF or were not parsed.
- TAF fields are returned in the same order, indicated by the
TAF Field Description.
The output includes some statistics about the request, such as the number of
results and the time taken to fulfill the request.
All data is
ordered by descending observation time.
An error message is generated when
an error in the input request prevents the retrieval of data.
If a constraint parameter is missing
and a default value exists, an appropriate warning message is
produced and the default request is fulfilled.
- For a description of the
TAF field names, their units and types, please refer to: TAF Field Description
