In order to extract data values use the method getMetData or getMetDataValues. They provides data for inputparameters timeserie type (observations, daily values, monthly values, monthly normals, daily normals and daily extremes), from- and to-dates (and possibly the times of the observations) as well as months, elements and stations.
In addition, a method called getRegionHistoryTrend provides trend data for the regions.
There are methods available for obtaining metadata describing the types of time series, elements, stations and quality control flags.
In order to be able to connect to the Klimadata Web Service you have to use the WSDL-document. It is recommended to store the WSDL file locally in conjunction with your client if you have a problem. Communication protocol SOAP encoding styles with the RPC/Encoded and RPC/Literal are used. Some methods use RPC/literal in response otherwise RPC/Encoded is used in input and response.
It is possible to get data form an URL. An example of a url for method getMetDataValues (following XSD schema) is:
http://eklima.met.no/met/MetService shows all of the methods that are available to the service complete.
