Your weather station is complete? Is it up and and running? This page is meant for those of you that have successfully finished the guides featured on this site. I would love paste links to your websites, so other people can see it as well. It would be especially interesting if you managed to add some features of your own and if you were able to improve any part of this project. Send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, provide a link to your Pi and I will post it here. If you want, you can leave a comment below, either will be fine. Just don’t be shy :). It’s time to show the world that you’ve build your weather station.First contributor is Simon P. He has completed this tutorial in only a few days after purchasing his first Raspberry Pi. Simon also noticed a bug in the WordPress plugin and was kind enough to notify me about that and proposed a solution as well – Thanks for that! He is still doing some work on his website, but you can take a look at it on http://simon-pfeffer.de/wetter/wordpress/. Alessandro Catorcini has also successfully completed this project. You really should check out his page, which is available on http://weather.catorcini.com/. He has greatly improved the starting code explained on this page. He has added an air pressure sensor and even modified the code to work with the new additions. Details for this expansion are explained here. I got lots of help from Stefan Mayer who was really kind and made quite a few fixes to the WordPress plugin. He has decided to build his own worm farm by following an article from 1981 and adding some technology to it. Take a look at his interesting project on http://www.2komma5.org/klima-daten-heute. The page is still being updated, but use Google translate, its an interesting read! His github username is mayerst, do take a look at his other code.
Wayne from Down under also finished the project and improved it. Take a look at his work at http://thedickersons.id.au/Weather/. In case you’re wondering, he is using High Charts to display the readings on a WordPress page. The station itself is hosted in a really professional looking enclosure. Definitively a must see!
I was contacted by Vesa from cold Finland. His weather station is using a mobile broadband router. To preserve batteries the router uploads the collected data between 12:00 and 21:00. The site itself is hosted on an Amazon AWS virtual server. The site is available on vaakua.dy.fi. Lets see how low the temperatures go in the near future.
Chris from the Royal Meteorological Society contacted me about a competition he is sponsoring.Take a look at the website for more information. He and his students are planning to use this tutorial to create a meteorological station and send it up in to the sky. Can’t wait to see some pictures. More information on the project is also available on https://balloonnews.wordpress.com/.
Uroš improved the wiring so the whole package fits into a neat little box. Visit http://morava.benkic.eu/ and take a peek at the readings. Raspberry Pi and sensors are placed outside, under the roof where it’s safe from rain. Good job!
