Some time ago I created a weather station using a Raspberry PI and an off the shelf weather station, connecting the two via USB. However, for some time not I’ve been meaning to create a weather station from scratch – i.e. one or more Raspberry PI’s which connect to the network (via Ethernet or WiFi) […]Read more "Connecting an Arduino to a Raspberry PI using I2C"
Weather webcams are always popular and it is easy and free to set one up yourself. This article will show how to setup a simple USB webcam to produce still images and serve them on a local apache webserver.Read more "Setting up a Weather WebCam on Linux"
In the first article I covered how to install a weather station on a Raspberry PI. In the second part I’ll cover how to get it to upload data on an hourly basis to a website using FTP. Getting the station to run hourly First we need to get the station to run hourly. To […]Read more "Installing a USB Weather Station on a Raspberry PI part 2"
One of the reasons for having multiple PI’s was to have one take over duties from an aging ITX based Linux box of reading from a USB Weather station and uploading the data to both it’s website and WeatherUnderground. Unfortunately this project got pushed forward when, last Thursday morning, the ITX box decided to die […]Read more "Installing a USB Weather Station on a Raspberry PI Part 1"
Whilst doing my daily read through Hansard on the train is morning I came across this written answer in the House of Lords about monitoring Space Weather: Question Asked by Lord Hunt of Chesterton To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have, in collaboration with other European countries and the European Space Agency, to […]Read more "The EU & Space Weather monitoring"
One of the tasks I want to use a Raspberry PI for is to take over the duties of an existing ITX based linux box running my weather station. Now in theory that should be pretty simple as the current setup uses pywws to connect to the station and as that’s written in python it […]Read more "Getting GPS to work on a Raspberry PI"
