Connecting Davis Station to GLOBE
Answer

Hi everyone, we have new school in Poland who uses Davis Station supported by WeatherLink software. They would like to "connect" their station to GLOBE database to report data.

We found some info on globe.gov website (https://www.globe.gov/get-trained/using-the-globe-website/setting-up-your-davis-station-to-send-data-to-globe) but as far as we know WeatherCat software is available for Macs only. On Davis' website it's said that data can be reported to GLOBE by one click (but no details mentioned).

Can anyone help with that? Thanks in advance.

There's also a step by step powerpoint presentation that walk you through how to connect your Davis to report to the Davis site, and then via email data entry to GLOBE:

One area that tends to give people trouble is the org and site id - take a look to make sure you're entering the correct IDs into the Davis software.
