Abstract
The observation of the meteorological phenomena has evolved over the time time in the course of continuous technological change: - Visual reading and manual annotations. - The use of automated equipment which register and transmit observations. - The implementation of remote sensing techniques. - Algorithms that allow defining weather values. At the same time, all of those processes are some of the actual meteorological data sources. Despite of this, it is well known that the best weather values at surface are observed by stations located on earth, but this type of observations have the inconvenience of a low geographic distribution. An alternative information source for climate values at ground level could be the Volunteer Weather Observations (VWO) Networks. In Spain, we have detected several VWO networks covering an important area. But all of them have their own several features which imply complexity at working with all networks at the same time.
