Subject Re: The NCDC Weather Data for Hadoop the Definitive Guide

Andy,

Since there is a lot of data on the free data of the site, I cannot figure
out which one is the one talked in the book. Any format differences might
cause the source code to get exceptions. Some data is even in PDF format!

Thanks so much!
Bing
