The Co-WIN is a collaborative effort of the Hong Kong Observatory, the Department of Applied Physics of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the Hong Kong Joint-school Meteorological Association. The aim is to gather weather information collected by weather stations in schools and organizations, and make it available on the Internet for use by the public after carrying out appropriate data quality assurance.
Members of the public can access the network's website at (http://weather.ap.polyu.edu.hk/index.php).
(The website has also been linked to the Observatory's homepage at http://www.weather.gov.hk/contente.htm).
All schools and organizations are welcome to join the network. For enquiries, please contact:
