Bring your own data

Getting Setup is Easy

We build custom solutions to ingest your weather data by utilizing either a url, data files, or communicating with the weather station logger directly. Advise us when your data is collected and it will be accessible shortly after. We’ll monitor the data to ensure the weather station is operating and notify you of any data issues that may arise. We work closely with Micro Specialties Inc to quickly ingest data sent over satellite.
