How Do Buildings Affect Wind Patterns in a City?

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.

5 Reasons to Measure Wind Speed and Direction Using a Smart GSM System

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”

The Role of Weather Monitoring Systems During Extreme Weather Events

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.
