Hello, Weather! attempts to de-mystify the collection and use of weather and climate data by bringing artists, technologists, ecologists and environmentalists together around public weather stations.
Two Professional Weather stations are currently in operation in New York City as part of this project, one at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center and one in partnership with the SP Weather Station project in Long Island City.
The Eyebeam site is on the West side of Manhattan, near the Hudson River and the SP Weather Station site is in Queens near the East River. Both stations are on rooftops. The stations are wireless and solar powered and transmit data to an indoor receiver that logs the data and uploads it to a computer.Data from both stations is being saved locally for archiving and use in projects.
