My objective is to extract the angle of direction (in degrees) of a pictorial arrow shown on a website. The context to this issue is that the web page is a weather forecast that includes hourly predictions of the wind speed and direction. The wind direction is shown only as a pictorial arrow, however I need that info as numerical data (in degrees) for use in another program that compares the forecast with actual data.
My proposed approach is to:-
1. Use AHK to open the weather forecast webpage; and then
2. Use AHK to manipulate the “Meazure software” (an on screen measuring tool) to measure the arrow direction (for each hour); and then
3. Use AHK to write that data to an excel file; and then
4. Use AHK to copy the wind speed data from the web page to the excel file.
Writing such a script is too challenging for my basic skills. I appreciate any kind assistance in helping me achieve this task. Thanks.
