Soil data logger telemetry
April 24, 2016 2 Comments
I have finally found time to build a simple website for my soil data logger with telemetry. The system works as the following:
- The data logger consists of a raspberry pi and my SDI-12 USB adapter with a Decagon 5TM soil sensor
- The data logger runs the open-source datalogger code I wrote in Python to first get parameters from the user (COM port, SDI-12 address, delay etc.), and then collect data, save to a local .CSV file, and then send the same data to sparkfun’s phant server.
- I constructed a web interface to plot the data using Google Charts and download .CSV version from sparkfun’s phant server.
Here is a screen shot:
I’ve uploaded the webpage to a server with a link below. The sensor is apparently NOT buried in soil so I can easily take the setup and set it up in different places to test its stability.
