Do you have a RPi connected weather station?

I have experienced a huge amount of interest in my tutorial at http://www.weather.dragontail.co.uk on how to connect a Raspberry Pi to a weather station. So why not create a map of the stations through the world.
Please go to the site and add your web site so we can see where these are.

I have changed the map to allow raspberry pi connected weather stations without a web site to be added.
Enjoy

Hi

I have added my station to your map http://www.g1gsw.org/ it is a 1-wire based system runing with a usb adapter.

Do maplin still sell this weather station ?

I have a TFA Dostmann Nexus, can that be used with the software ?

Thanks

As Maplin is a reseller doing business in UK and Ireland only, I wonder if the real manufacturer and resellers in other countries are known?

I was looking at the software installation file 'aboutWeather.ini' where I found
[about]
version=EasyWeather Version 6.2
...
softupdate=www.foshk.com

Therefore it seems to be the model http://www.foshk.com/Weather_Professional/WH1080.htm
Assuming this is correct, Conrad has it on offer in Germany http://www.conrad.de/ce/de/product/6728 ... 0&ref=list because 'WH1080' is used as part number there too.

Is anybody in a position to verify and confirm these findings?

Best regards
Mike

Mihol you are correct. WH1080 or compatible weather stations should work. The suggestion is that any running easyweather software will be ok, but i cannot verify this.

Thanks pingu512. The complete set of wireless sensors are also sold separatly for ~40 € ie http://www.ebay.de/itm/Ersatz-Wettermas ... 4d0722f435
Actually this could potentially open up a whole new set of opportunities for Rassberry Pi combined with wireless receiver expansion boards (i.e CISECO's EVE). Assuming the wireless protocol between sensors and the base weather station could be understood/reverse engineered the Pi could act direcly as a weather station but with network access :)

Actually the protocol has already been understood as I just noticed.
