Data gathering processes can have many names based on how data is collected and used. Sampling, logging and monitoring all involve data collection, but there are very important differences between the three. This article provides an overview of each concept and when it is applied. Continue reading “Wind Data Collection: Difference Between Sampling, Logging and Monitoring”
Cloud computing is often associated with entertainment: having all your multimedia in an online database that is accessible and intuitive. However, cloud computing is also a powerful business tool, allowing information management with data volumes and transmission speeds that were impossible just a few decades ago. Continue reading “Why You Need Your Wind Data on the Cloud”
In nature, wind patterns at ground level are influenced by trees, hills and mountains. These objects have an individual effect on the surrounding area, and they also have broader effects when found in groups, such as forests and ridges. In a similar fashion, buildings affect the wind in urban locations, but consider they have sharp corners and rectangular shapes not found in nature. Continue reading “How Do Buildings Affect Wind Patterns in a City?”
A crane is essentially a metallic structure, and like all structures it has elements and joints that can only tolerate certain force before they fail. Of course, the forces required to cause failure are extremely high for a metallic crane, which is built to hoist equipment weighing many tonnes. Continue reading “How Does Wind Turbulence Affect Cranes?”
Does your current weather monitoring solution have the right features to measure wind speed and direction effectively?
Whilst wind data is only reliable if the measurement system is accurate, weather monitoring is often performed in locations with limited access to communication networks. Continue reading “5 Reasons to Measure Wind Speed and Direction Using a Smart GSM System”
Do you work in a remote environment? Monitoring the weather in harsh or hazardous conditions can be a challenge, especially on remote sites where there is limited power available. Wind monitoring is very demanding in terms of data processing requirements. Continue reading “How to Choose the Best System for Remote Weather Monitoring”
In recent years, the often unpredictable nature of extreme weather events means that a weather monitoring system performs a very important function. Whilst weather forecasts provide a general idea of what to expect, a weather monitoring system, like WINDCRANE, can deliver accurate live data that is location-specific. Continue reading “The Role of Weather Monitoring Systems During Extreme Weather Events”
The weather affects nearly all commercial, industrial and institutional sectors, but those operating outdoors are especially vulnerable to harsh weather. The wind has the potential to blow around debris and emissions from landfill sites, recycling facilities, and other waste management operations. Continue reading “Weather Monitoring in Waste Management Applications”
Weather monitoring systems are available in many configurations, but what makes WINDCRANE different is the underlying technology.
Modern organisations operate across vast geographic distances and as a result, have large volumes of weather data to manage. Continue reading “Logic Energy: The Experts Behind WINDCRANE”
Do you face weather hazards in the construction industry on a regular basis? The environmental impact of greenhouse gases has made extreme weather more common and consequently, workers in the construction industry are more vulnerable to sudden weather events.
