iWindsurf Jericho Graph Resolution Downgrade?

Off Topic Comments, Help, Tips and Trick

What happened to the graph resolution and reading frequency for iWindsurf - Jericho? It used to be very detailed. Now it only shows one reading every hour on the half hour. I don't have a membership so maybe that has something to do with it. However, the graph has always been very detailed and frequent up to recently even for unpaid users. What's the story?

I dont know the story behind it, but the datafeed comes from here:https://jsca.bc.ca/services/weather/

I would guess the wind station owner just decided to drop the refresh rate, and that it has nothing to do with iWindsurf, who is mainly a data-aggregator (although I think they own some of their own stations)

I think refresh changed from 5min to 30min, see the 2d dump. Also it shows at least 5kn more than actual wind on water.

I wonder if anyone at JSCA is aware the change and if so what the reason for he change would be. Anyone here at WTFBC know who at Jericho sailing club that might be? Perhaps they can look in to it.
