Manage collected data easily with import and export functions.
View weather data in tabular, graphical form or both.
Connecting to your weather station is as simple as clicking the connect button.
Connection options include:
Direct cable connection (options up to 5km)
Telephone line modems
Wireless radio data links.
Combinations of the above may also be used.
EasiAccess ensures secure connection and communication with the weather station in three ways by verifying the:
weather station serial number
date and time
‘Real Time’ or Live weather Data
EasiAccess provides a full screen display of the weather ‘right now’. This means the current conditions from your site can be monitored from your site office – typically only used with a direct cable link or UHF connection. (Our WeatherMation LIVE service is the best option for web based data collection).
Collecting (stored) Data
When told to collect the data from the weather station, EasiAccess automatically collects all data stored in the weather station since the last time data was collected. This data is saved into simple text files on the computer, providing a secure copy of the data. These data files are then used to update the database automatically.
EasiAccess will warn the user if it detects out of sequence data, data files that have no ‘end of data’ marker, invalid dates or times, or the wrong number of items. Therefore you will be assured of the validity of your data. For advanced users, a wide range of collection options can be selected.
Managing Your Data
Viewing your weather data is as simple as double clicking on a memory table in the database.
Daily, hourly and intensive data (for example 15minute data) from the weather station are held as separate database ‘tables’ within EasiAccess, which means immediate access to the level of detail that you require. Simply clicking on a table heading displays an automatically scaled graph of that data, as shown to the left.
A simple click and drag zoom function, zoom in/out buttons on the toolbar, and zoom controlled by the mouse wheel provides quick access to the desired level of detail in your graphs.
To compare or contrast readings, up to six graphs can be shown on the same chart. This allows you, for example, to place the air temperature, relative humidity and wind speed onto a single chart. In addition, several columns of data can be displayed in each of the six graphs. For example, the average wind speed and peak wind gust on the one graph.
The tabular view shows the actual recorded values and allows selected sections to be printed or exported to other applications.
There is no limit to the number of data points EasiAccess can handle.
EasiAccess provides database tools to allow data from each weather station to be viewed, imported, exported and modified as desired.
Selected data can be exported in three formats, the standard Environdata format, CSV format for direct transfer to MS Excel and Access, and a customise-able format to allow transfer to virtually any other application.
Data can also be imported with similar ease. Your data can also be edited in EasiAccess’ table based editor.
The ability to archive your database as desired will maintain the ‘current’ database at a manageable size. This allows you to maximise the speed of data access.
