18 Nov Fun with sensors and weather
A growing number of easy-to come by sensors, combined with technology like Arduino, allows journalists to compile data to tell revealing and intriguing stories with an interactive flourish.
On Long Island, as in most places, I assume, we’re obsessed with the weather. We get definable seasons, but it’s stayed warmer for longer for years.
I would like to determine the weather pattern over the course of the fall and winter with this weather sensor and then compare the numbers to same period of time over the previous 10 years. This could lead to an interesting community story on the extent to which our area is getting warmer. Then we could look at the big picture of the expected impact of global warming.
