RASC Toronto Centre - Carr Observatory - local weather


This is our third dashboard test page. We are uploading weather data from our on-site weather station. Data is being retrieved from Vantage Pro 2 station connected to the "Saranya 2" computer in the supervisor closet of the CAO. Image files for the current conditions, every 15 minutes, are being uploaded, via FTP protocol, to the RASC Toronto Centre web site. The historical files are uploaded once a day. Details of the hardware and software used are noted below.
