AIRSIGMET CSV Format
- Each row of AIRSIGMET data is returned as a separate line and
AIRSIGMET fields are separated by a comma ','.
The AIRSIGMET fields are always returned in the order indicated by
the AIRSIGMET Field Description . The latitude and longitude points that comprise the AIRSIGMET area are delimited by ':' and each lat/lon pair is delimited from another by a ';'.
Any fields that appear to be missing are either not reported in the AIRSIGMET or
were not parsed.
The output includes some statistics about the request, such as the number of
results and the time taken to fulfill the request.
- All data is
ordered by descending observation time.
- An error message is generated when
an error in the input request prevents the retrieval of data.
If a constraint parameter is missing
and a default value exists, an appropriate warning message is
produced and the default request is fulfilled.

AIRSIGMET field names, their units and types, please refer to: AIRSIGMET Field Description
An example of CSV output is below:
