NOAA WW3 Grib Data access

Hi All,

I've been trying my very hardest to figure out how to access NOAA WW3 data for a point location via an internet link with the output as a text file (or readable with excel)
Would anyone know how to do this?

I'm trying to get a direct link for a number of points around the globe, similar to this http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/waves/WEB..._1.MAJURO.bull but with some additional information such as wind speed, direction etc.

Is this possible?

Otherwise maybe it is possible with FNMOC?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Maybe there's a direct link which will give me wind data for specific locations?

Re: NOAA WW3 Grib Data access

Can you access data for an area? If so, limit the area till it encompasses the point you are interested in. Te data is discrete, not continuous; you will end up with a 'point' data.

Re: NOAA WW3 Grib Data access

Thanks Barnakiel,

I can use programs such as qtvlm to source the data but I was hoping to get it from a website (this saves me having to download a new GRIB file, import into program, export data & import to excel). The NOAA WW3 product viewer almost gives me what I need but I also need wind data (and would like a bit more freedom in exact locations). NWW3 Product Viewer

I'm now thinking I'll have to source the wave data from the NOAA product viewer and the wind data from another internet source.
Obviously Text files are damn small and I can have them automatically update every time I open excel.
