Landsverk runs 27 weather stations nationwide. Statistics from most of the stations date back to 2006, but some statistics go further back to 1998. The stations measure wind direction, wind speed (average wind and whirlwinds are measured every ten minutes), air temperature, air pressure and precipitation. Many of the weather stations also measure road temperature, condensation on roads, black ice and salt. The weather data (raw data) is used for various purposes, for example:
• The foundation for certain projects and for calculating time-waste and other things related to building.
• Documentation in connection with injuries, accidents and more.
• Calculating precipitation
• Weather studies and measurements
• Airspace studies
