We require someone to write code in .NET to provide methods to calculate various climate statistics for each of approximately 50 separate weather parameters.
The successful candidate will working with our meteorologist. They will have a good working knowledge of .NET, MySQL, XML. They will also need to have excellent mathematics skills.
We will provide a sample set of approximately 10 years of weather data in XML. We require the person to first understand the structure of this data and what this data set contains. They will then need to write code to create formulas to extract weather averages, highs, lows etc for each variable for any given location.
For any location we require the .NET method write out to XML the statistical results for any given weather parameter as defined within the project Word Doc.
An outline of the project is given in the attached Word Doc.
The successful candidate will be asked to first review the work required and provide a detailed description on how they intend to complete the project. Once agreed, the work to complete the project can commence. The nature of the data is such that throughout the project we will be on hand to answer any questions and guide the project.
Any previous experience of working with weather data, or an interest in the weather would be useful.
We anticipate the time to complete this work will be approximately 40 hours.
