Collection of Historical Weather Data: Issues with Missing Values

10/15/2019 ∙ by Fadoua Rafii, et al. ∙ 0

Weather data collected from automated weather stations have become a crucial component for making decisions in agriculture and in forestry.

Unfortunately, this will cause huge problems when analysing the data. The main aim of this study is to create high-quality historical weather datasets by dealing efficiently with missing values. In this paper, we present a set of missing data imputation methods and study their effectiveness. These methods were used based on different types of missing values. The experimental results show that two the proposed methods are very promising and can be used at larger scale.
