DEPRECATED. Download data from the Galician Meterology Agency (MeteoGalicia)

downloadMGhistorical(date_from, date_to, station_id = NULL,  
                    verbose = TRUE)
downloadMGcurrentday(station_id = NULL, daily = TRUE, verbose = TRUE)


date_from, date_to

Strings or objects of class Date specifying first and last date of the desired period.


A string vector containing station ids (the list of stations presently operative is given by downloadMGstationlist). If NULL all stations with available data are returned.


Boolean flag to print process information.


Boolean flag. Are data to be returned at a daily or hourly scale?


See available data services of MeteoGalicia at


Function downloadMGstationlist returns a SpatialPointsDataFrame-class object containing the list of MeteoGalicia weather stations currently operative. Function downloadMGhistorical downloads data for the specified MG weather stations (or all) and dates and returns a SpatialPointsMeteorology-class object with the downloaded meteorology for each station (point).

Function downloadMGcurrentday downloads recent weather data (the last 24h) from all currently available stations and returns data frame if daily = FALSE or a SpatialPointsDataFrame-class object with observations aggregated at the daily scale otherwise.


Since ver. 1.0.1, weather data download functions included in meteoland make internal calls to functions in package meteospain. For an enhanced flexibility, users are recommended to call functions in meteospain themselves, and then to use function reshapemeteospain to generate data suitable for meteoland.


MeteoGalicia (from the Conselleria de Medio Ambiente, Territorio e Vivenda of Xunta de Galicia) should be acknowledged as source of information when using this data.
