How open is the data?

The submission was partly correct. Following changes have been made: The data is indeed openly licensed. If users want to download forecast data, they need to accept terms of use. It is stated that all web content is provided under the Attribution 2.5 Argentina license, see explanations to the license here: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.5/ar/deed.en Besides a data download data is accessible and presented in many formats: as detailed weather forecasts for the current day, available through a search mask, or as forecast maps. These maps are not interpretable, because the scales are missing a legend. So precipitation amount cannot be easily understood.
