Weather Station App

I developed and published an Android app to display data from personal weather stations that are set up through WeatherUnderground. This project started out of my frustration with the WU mobile web interface and it was an excuse to do some Android coding.

The app now helps over 2000 active users access the data from their weather stations including pilots landing at a small airport and a volunteer fire department monitoring their local weather.

At its core it parses text from the PWS webpage into numerical data points and displays them in a number of ways.

List of channels it can display:

  • Temperature
  • Dewpoint
  • Pressure
  • Wind Speed
  • Wind Gust
  • Wind Direction
  • Humidity
  • Hourly Rain
  • Daily Rain
