The Davis Instruments weather station console receives data from the various sensors. This console is then connected to a IdeaCentre Q110 Mini PC with an Intel Atom 1.6 GHz processor and 2GB of RAM powered by Windows 7 64-bit. A software program called Weather Display captures all the data and is uploaded to the web server which the data is parsed for use in these pages.
