Continuing Meteor’s strategy of embracing Open Data for the benefit of its large and varied user community, external data and applications have been made available in the Meteor Data Centre user interface:
Open Government Hydrometry Data
Following the release of over 3,000 Water Level, Groundwater Level and Flow Station data sites under the Open Government Licence all of these sites are available to view and manipulate in the Meteor Data Centre.
Environment Agency 3 Day Flood Risk Forecast and Mapping
Met. Office Weather Forecast
A five day weather forecast view showing cloud condition, temperature, wind speed/direction and UV levels along with national real time forecast maps of rainfall, pressure and temperature is available.
This development reflects the movement towards an Internet of Things (IoT) approach for application content that Meteor will continue to develop and expand for the benefit of end users as new data sources become available.
Over the next few weeks Meteor will be exhibiting at the SWIG Sensing in Water Conference on the 23rd September at the Belfry and at the Flood Defence Expo at the EXCEL centre on the 14th and 15th of October. Please do come and visit our stand for a chat!
We will also be visiting Aquatech Amsterdam on 4th November
The MCE-Nexus camera continues to be successfully deployed for trash screen monitoring, bringing high quality, real time images from remote locations with no mains power or other infrastructure. The newly released datasheet Nexus installation examples shows some example deployments for customers in a variety of locations across the UK.
In the past week Meteor have been installing a major Flood Monitoring system on behalf of a Local Authority in Wales. This will help to protect thousands of homes and demonstrates large scale multi-mode real time monitoring, incorporating level monitoring, cameras and metrological sensors integrated to a web platform.

Meteor have provided two MCC-972XS GPRS Telemetry units to Partech Instruments for retro fitment on data buoys at PD Ports Teesside. The units report multiple Water Quality parameters in real time with 15 minute data acquisition and also control the instrumentation for power efficiency. The use of Meteor telemetry has increased the data collection capability of the buoys whilst reducing power consumption.
Thankyou to everyone who visited the stand at WWEM in Telford, it was good to catch up with existing customers and to meet many potential new ones! Following the GPRS camera workshop please find the presentation available to download here WWEM Cam presentation 06-11-14

The monitoring of snowfall in remote locations in Iceland is an example of the harsh environments in which Meteor Communications operate.
The above image, showing the first snowfall of the year, is from one of the Meteor Nexus Camera units currently deployed in Iceland to monitor snow conditions in remote, rugged locations where mains power is unavailable.
