Connecting to the MET Office Weather Observation Website

A short post on contributing to the MET Weather Observation Website.
(What to do with all this data I have)

A colleague pointed out that the Bureau of Meteorology is contributing to a massive online project hosted by the MET Office that collects weather observation information from the community, link here, and that I should contribute my data.

My only problem was that my data is collected from a bespoke weather station and lacked a mechanism that could push the data to the MET Office’s servers. So using their documentation, I wrote one in Python and set it up as a cron job on my server.

Here is my weather station website on the MET site. And a link to my script, in Python that does the work.
