wview is a linux/*BSD/unix/MacOSX-Darwin application that controls a Davis Vantage Pro or Vantage Pro2 weather station console to retrieve archive records and current conditions.
The archive records are stored in the Davis WLK file format (thus Weatherlink generated archive files can be used by wview). Archive records may optionally be stored in a relational database (MySQL or PostgreSQL).
At a user-defined interval, wview will use the archive history and current conditions to generate weather images (buckets and graphs) and HTML web pages based on configurable HTML templates. Optionally, the web pages can be transferred to a remote web server via an ftp or secure ssh process included with wview.
Optionally, the wview alarm daemon wvalarmd can be enabled to deliver current conditions to TCP socket clients as a near real-time data feed engine. wvalarmd can also be configured to function as a weather data alarm generator to user specified scripts or binaries. Optionally, your station data can be submitted to the CWOP system for use by NOAA and others or to the Weather Underground.
wview can be easily configured for international or US units, labels and text. wview supports serial and USB data loggers. wview natively supports connectivity with a terminal server or serial server via TCP sockets - no intermediate software required to make the ethernet port "look" like a serial port.
