Weather Stations Tutorial

There are many vendors making weather stations, each using a different method for sending weather station data to the GLOBE Database. Below we will cover what you need to know to setup a few of the most popular weather stations on the GLOBE.gov website. We will provide hints on what to do with the vendor software although we recommend contacting the vendor if you're having issues using their software. Be sure to check the "Supporting Protocols" section on this page for documents related to various Weather Stations.
