    Finally done it.

    Been meaning to do this for the last couple of years. Just before I left my old job working in the school, [ just over two years now] - the last job I did was to setup their Weather Station. I had been meaning to do my own but never got round to doing it until today.



    Web site for stats [ not much at the moment ] - www.mattmarsh.co.uk

    Excellent project for schools to do.

    That's pretty cool Matt - how much was it, roughly, to complete?

    I put one on the roof of our school, with a display in Y7. I don't think anyone has so much as looked at it.

    Only 100 from Maplin.
    I'm using an laptop to get the data. Will sort out getting into mySQL too at some stage.

    Nice. I'm a big fan of weather stations. Why don't you 'Pi' it? It'll save you quite a bit on the electric bills and there is an article here on how to connect a Maplin weather station to a Pi: DragonTail Mapping and the Raspberry Pi

    Just registered it on Wunderground.com:

    Weather Station History | Weather Underground

    Next stop will be getting data into a SQL DB.

    with this is there any way to get the data used 'properly'. by this i mean if you live in a small town/village that has no accurate online weather from the met office/bbc/yahoo is there a way of setting your self up as the station? its annoying when i look on my phone and its inaccurate and have thought about doing this at past and present jobs but never really investigated it.

    Yes, just use the Cumulus software - this feed is directly from the station in my back yard - www.mattmarsh.co.uk
    The feeds going to wunderground are being fed from the same software.
    Not sure what apps [ if any ] are currently out there for this but I will [ time permitting ] will try to write one just for mine. Only Android though - not paying Apple.....
