In November 2013 eHideaway acquired a USB Wireless Touchscreen Weather Station from Maplin for its York site. The weather station is a re-badged Fine Offset WH1080.
The website does not use the Easyweather software provided with the weather station. Instead bespoke Python programs running on a Raspberry Pi are used to extract data from the station, to aggregate the data, to load the data into a MySQL database in the cloud and to calculate the various minimum and maximum records. The interface to the Fine Offset base station is based on that developed by Jim Easterbrook for pywws.
The weather station is located at an elevation of 20 metres just to the north of the walled centre of the City of York, England. The site is south facing and totally sheltered to the north.
The site has been tested with the major browsers. It is HTML5 and CSS compliant.
Please use this contact form if you wish to email eHideaway. Constructive feedback is welcomed.
The York weather station has been decommissioned.
