Development of Automated Acquisition System for Meteorological Elements Using Information on Web
In learning weather conditions, it is important to find the relationship between changes in the weather and meteorological elements through meteorological observations, and to understand how atmospheric conditions change. In schoolwork observations, however, variations of meteorological elements are limited because of constraints on location and time. Thus, reference data are required for reading the results obtained by schoolwork observations. AMeDAS (Automated Meteorological Data Acquisition System) data are suitable for this purpose. But informations on the AMeDAS web are only available for the day and the previous day. Therefore, in order to utilize the AMeDAS data in classes, an automated system is needed, which can continuously collect and accumulate weather observation data from AMeDAS and also provide them when needed. This study developed an automated system by a computer, which is based on hourly collection of weather information from AMeDAS and accumulation in the SQL server. The results of the operation of the system are described.
