Known Issues and Workarounds

We are aware that there are certain issues with the Data Portal. However, there are ways to get around these. Below is a list of the current known issues and the temporary solutions.

1. MET-DATA Data Download

Issue:         The data-download doesn’t contain the selected MET data.

Solution:     Select catchment 4 in the map. As the MET station is located in the ‘old’ catchment 4.

2. Live Trends Graphs

Issue:         The text on the axes of the Live Trends graphs is too small to read

Solution:     Zoom in on graph using the browser zoom controls  (Ctrl +)

3. Graph on Download page is refreshing all the time

Issue:         When selecting variables, the graph is constantly updating, and the user has to wait until the loading has finished until another variable can be selected.

Solution:     Change the date-interval to fall outside the available data period (above the variable selection boxes is stated when the data is available), then tick all the variables required. After all selection boxes are ticked, change the date to the desired date-interval. This way all the data will be loaded only once.

4. Issues with iPhone or Android phone

Issue:         Some of the icon buttons on the NWFP front page aren’t appearing, making it impossible to enter the Data Portal.

Solution:     No solution at present.

5. Closing the help page in the Data Portal in Chrome

Issue:         The close button isn’t always visible on a laptop screen.

Solution:     Use the mouse wheel to scroll down the page, or CTRL Page Down.
