Raspberry Pi- Weather Logger

Introduction: Raspberry Pi- Weather Logger

About: Look away. I created this long ago. I regret that. Someone tell me how to delete my account please.

Have you ever wanted to own a weather station, or just want to brag that you have your own? Well if you didn't and just want another Raspberry Pi project to try out, then you've come to the right place. To start you need the usual items: Your Raspberry Pi, a SD card with NOOBS and Rasbian installed, keyboard, mouse, monitor (or TV), & optionally a Ethernet cord plugged into your router. But you will also need a USB drive to plug into your Raspberry Pi to store your weather data (I recommend a 8-16 gigabyte drive) & a Sense hat (A Raspberry Pi Attachment)

Step 1: Checking Your Hardware

Plug it into a open USB drive slot and open a terminal and type the command "ls /media" (This is to show you the USB's name).

Step 2: Entering Your Code

Download the Python File included in the bottom of this step (Its the Arduino Weather Station, You can edit the code any way you want) then, (Leave the Raspberry Pi there on your work space or put it anywhere you want) next run the module.Your file that has all of the weather is located at /home/pi/ or you can change it by going to (In the code and changing:) "/home/pi/data/_log.csv" & setting it to what ever you want!

    Pictures of your Raspberry Pi connected to all the sensors would help to illustrate how other people could make their own weather logger.
