Sharing some examples of the excellent data visualizations Pierre's WordPress plugin can do...

Visit: http://www.kenclifton.com/wordpress/about/weather-conditions/

In case the page does not come up, a screenshot is attached.

All information is updated every two minutes via a Python script running on the Web server that pulls local data from the Davis 6100 WeatherLinkLive box -- nothing at all is pulled down from the Internet.  The Python script parses the JSON data from the 6100 and builds a realtime.txt file that is read by the Weather Station plugin.  The WeatherLinkLive local API is documented at https://github.com/weatherlink/weatherlink-live-local-api

P.S. Forgot to add that I am using Bootstrap.css to make the whole page mobile device responsive.  I was pleased that the data visualizations are also mobile-device responsive (I did not do anything to enable that on Pierre's visualizations).

Best Regards,

Ken Clifton, Salisbury NC, USA

Hi Ken,

Nice website! I really like the small semi-circle dials with the min/max indicators on the left!

Hi Gerhard!

Thank you for the kind words.   I missed seeing your site at:   https://weeropdeveluwe.nl somehow.  It looks like I went down many of the topics that you implemented so nicely on your site.   I found your site after reading your post here.   

You have an excellent approach using two data files for input !   I had not even considered using two files.  I chose the realtime.txt format because it appears to pass the most information, but it would be very easy to have my Python script output another file :).  Thank you for that idea! 

I am so grateful to your country and Dr. Gerrit Melles there.  Without his work I would not have eyesight to make a Web site.  Thank you!

Respectfully,

Hi Ken,

Thanks for the compliments. 

Yes, I added the different exportfiles (realtime.txt and Clientraw.txt) both, because in each of the file there is data that is not present in the other. For instance I use a thermometer at grass-level. This data is included in the Clientraw, but not in the Realtime file. So this makes it 'best of both worlds' in a way. 

I am really very pleased with the WeatherStation plugin. For a large part this has to do with the developer, Pierre. Last year I asked if there could be some implementation of indexes that are use often, and they were implemented in the next update. I never had any developer react so quick and effective! 

I did not know about dr Melles yet. It is great to hear about him from someone in a totally different part of the world! As a photographer I can only imagine how devastating loss of eyesight would be. So it is really great he was able to help you!

Kind regards,

Gerhard Witteveen
