Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
The dataset contains meteorological information from the period 1880-1900 extracted from three Romanian newspapers (România Liberă, Gazeta de Transilvania and Foaia Poporului). Each entry represents a meteorological event, with its metadata and characteristics (date, location, category, impact, validation). Validation consisted in checking the consistency of the newspaper reports with meteorological observations from weather stations.
