Projects / wview


wview is an application that controls a supported weather station to retrieve archive records and current conditions. Archive records may optionally be stored in a relational database (MySQL or PostgreSQL). At a user-defined interval, wview will use the archive history and current conditions to generate weather images (buckets and graphs) and Web pages based on configurable HTML templates. It supports serial and USB data loggers, as well as connectivity with a terminal server or serial server via TCP sockets.

          Release Notes: This release modifies HTTP rain submission (Wunderground and Weatherforyou) so only the "rainin" parameter is sent, so daily rain will be correct.

          •  19 Mar 2012 11:21

            Release Notes: This release adds a new configuration option to disable using the Vantage Pro console archive records and instead autogenerate them from the LOOP data, modifies the WH1080 station interface to relax packet header requirements so it is compliant with more stations of this type, adds the configuration item "Default Wind Units" to the wviewmgmt generation page, adds support for all tags and graphics to use the selected wind units, lets the user select mph, m/s, knots, or km/h for the global default wind units in wview, and changes the minimum CWOP reporting interval from 10 to 5 minutes.
