Wind Direction is 180 degress out

Am using Stickertags for uploading data.  Latest data for direction in the station readings shows the correct wind direction angle, however if I create a widget for displaying the wind direction in either a compass rose, plain text or numeric value, it displays as exactly 180 degrees different.  

I have reviewed the Settings -> Display option for wind direction and selecting either of the two options makes no difference.  I can only assume this is a bug.

Please advise how to resolve this.

Hi @CWS,

Did you notice the wind and gust have 2 different attributes: Wind source and wind direction. This can be a bit confusing, but the source is 'where the wind is coming from', the direction is 'where it is going to'. Usually North wind means wind from the north, so then you have to use the 'Wind Source' option.

I hope this helps!

Kind regards, stay safe!

Gerhard
