4.1.1.11 World Data Center

Some support is provided for files produced by the World Data Centre for Solar Terrestrial Physics. The format itself apparently has no name, but files in this format look something like the following:

  Column formats and units - (Fixed format columns which are single space seperated.)
  ------------------------
  Datetime (YYYY mm dd HHMMSS)            %4d %2d %2d %6d      -
                                          %1s
  aa index - 3-HOURLY (Provisional)       %3d                  nT

  2000 01 01 000000  67
  2000 01 01 030000  32
      ...
Support for WDC tables is experimental (does the format still exist?) - it may not be very robust.

This format is not detected automatically - you must specify that you wish to load a table in wdc format.
