If you are interested in supporting Cumulus then maybe you would like to contribute to the maintenance of the Wiki? This need not take hours of your time - just a half hour here and there can make a big difference, particularly if many people are doing this. Any contributions are very welcome, whether they involve new content or editing of existing content. It will be very helpful to current and future users of Cumulus software if the Wiki is kept well-maintained and current. If you are interested then please contact forum user saratogaWX and ask for a Wiki account.

Add solar radiation and UV high (and sunshine hours) to console Records

Please DO NOT use this to publish your entire wish. This Forum is for specific suggestions to enhance the usability of Cumulus MX for all users, NOT your personal requirements. Please check this forum and the rejected forum to make sure you are NOT posting a DUPLICATE suggestion. It will be heavily monitored by Admin and Mark Crossley to determine the feasibility and the difficulty of the suggestion. Those Topics that are deemed inadmissible will moved to the rejected Forum. The remaining Topics will be the Accepted list of future developments, and when our voluntary development group adds it to a build, the build number will be added to the Topic title.

Add solar radiation and UV high (and sunshine hours) to console Records

Post by Gyvate »

solar radiation and solar (sunshine) hours are shown in the now and today/yesterday console view and in the charts but not in the high/low history (monthly/yearly/all time Records).
Request to add these observations (and also UV) to the Records (high/low - of here only high ;) ).
UV only shows on the dashboard and charts so far, not on the now, today/yesterday, Records tab.
Please consider to add.

spike problem

There may be a good practical reason not to include the highest momentary values for either solar or UV in record accounting.

Reflections off clouds that are near the direct path from the sun to the sensor mean that both of these sensors log values for short periods of time that are substantially above the cloudless value.

in principle you can apply this reasoning to almost any sensor, especially wind.
That's why one usually defines thresholds outside which abnormally high observations are discarded.
You can leave it to the user to correct obviously wrong peaks in the database.
But taking the potential peaks as a reason for not admitting them to high/low records I find is imo too far-fetched.
Interestingly do the other popular weather software like weewx, WeatherDisplay, Meteobridge not discard these sensors from the high/low tables, but allow to define thresholds.
