How it works

DataFarmer allows you to connect your existing weather stations to the network, allowing you to view data from different telemetry providers, side-by-side.

You can also add other weather stations to your view list, like those of your neighbours, clients or farm group (with permission).

When a region starts to have a lot of weather stations connected, we can start to connect the data together to make it more useful for everyone - for example, our (under development) Experimental Radar can show you on a map where it's raining currently, meaning you can see rainfall events and their intensity as they move.

Connect a weather station to the network

Connecting a weather station to the network is easy - it doesn't matter what type of weather station you have, but it does matter who your telemetry provider is (they're the ones who decode the station's readings and transfer them to the internet).

We natively support BCG Data Co-op weather stations connected via the Taggle network. We're working on integrating a number of other telemetry providers currently. If you'd like to hear about new DataFarmer integrations as they become available, subscribe to our mailing list.

If you're not a techy person, don't worry - we can help set all of this up over the phone. Our support guy Tim's a farmer from Jil Jil in Victoria who also finds time for this, so he knows what you're talking about.

Subscribe to other people's weather stations

DataFarmer accounts are free to create, and it's free to subscribe to other people's stations (you only pay to connect your device to the network).

Subscribing to data from other people's stations is easy, as long as they've set their device to be available to the public. (If not, you'll have to ask them to switch it over before you can see it.)

Regional weather info and the power of sharing

We know that sharing and working together is common in agriculture, especially when it comes to resources like weather stations and soil probes, so we built this in by default. DataFarmer can also take this a step further by showing regional weather, allowing you to track things like rainfall events and storms, wind patterns and temperatures. Our beta of the Experimental Radar will be available soon.

This kind of feature gets better and more useful when there are more stations providing data, so we appreciate it when you refer your friends and neighbours to DataFarmer too.
