Other uses for easyweather.dat file

Discussion and questions about Cumulus weather station software version 1. This section and its subforums are the main place to get help with Cumulus. Anything which is not specific to the type of weather station goes in here; for anything specific to a type of weather station, please use the appropriate subforum. Use the 'website development' section for any questions relating to creating or running a web site for Cumulus data. Discussion of the stations themselves in these sections is fine.

North East by East is a point in between NE and ENE on a 32 point compass. According to wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compass_points

I think they just 'got it wrong'. Probably lost in translation; perhaps it's done that way in Chinese?

I've changed the code so that it now accepts 'standard' compass points as well as 'Fine Offset' inventions.

Just bumping this back up - I'm about to start creating a single record file to feed my homemade station information to Cumulus.

Is the "fields actually used in red" post a few posts back in this thread still correct? I can calculate dew point and windchill, but somehow totalling "rain this year" is giving me heartburn... and I suppose rain last hour is a bit of work too (counter that resets on the hour, or is it a sliding window?)

As far as I know, yes. But note that Cumulus doesn't necessarily use the fields for the same purpose as Easyweather...

All the 'rain this year' figure needs to be is an incrementing total counter; and 'rain last hour' is just used as the rate.

Hello All,

I am not understanding what to do with these two text files. I understand i need to modify the Path to what i have, but I do not know what to do with these files?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Charlie

This thread is discussing using an old interface originally intended for Fine Offset stations to get data into Cumulus from home designed stations. You gather the data from your station and put it in the correct format in a file called easyweather.dat. You then point Cumulus to the file wherever you put it, and update the contents of that easyweather.dat file regularly with information from your station.

I've re-read the thread a few times and don't know how you got an impression of two files.

The biggest limitation of this method is that you only get the latest information into Cumulus. If you stop Cumulus for any reason, you get a gap in the data. This is not the case for any other interface, and is the main reason it is not recommended, I believe.

I hate to revive a old topic. but...
I have a ws-2813u-it and trying to get cumulus working.
I have everything installed and the file output is sort of working but its only outputting the template file and no data?
Am i doing something wrong?

Paul, he's not trying to use the station directly with Cumulus, he's trying to get WUHU to generate a file that Cumulus can read.
