Overview



Meteobridge standard and Meteobridge Pro
  • Meteobridge, like the word it does. Meteobridge bridge between weather data from your weather station on one bank and the internet on the other.
  • Two variants. Standard Meteobridge (Weerhuisje product cat: WUS02) and Meteobridge Pro (Weerhuisje product cat: WUS03).

  • Pure bridge function. Weather data only being "put through".
  • System setup loaded at boot from saved settings at meteobridge.com server.
  • No database. So no risk of database corruption. Very robust!

  • MB Pro black > No built in meteostick (Davis receiver)
  • MB Pro red (Pro+) > Does have built in meteostick (Davis receiver)
  • Building it's own weather database on internal disk space.
  • Autonomously generation of (extended) graphs (examples on bottom of page)
  • Dynamic display of graphs, show/hide weather variables and timeframe.

Several functionalities
  • Easily upload of weather data (concurrently) to several collecting sites like Weather Underground (wunderground), Winfinder, Awekas etc.
  • Weerhuisje's  plug&play weather website is especially designed for use by a standard meteobridge (pro will work too).
  • Automatic tweets generation at preset conditions.
  • Alarms via email or sms whenever preset tresh holds are being exceeded.
  • Meteobridge also supports use of the Saratoga and Leuven template. Building your own extensive weather website. Dis does however require some knowledge of HTML and scripting.
  • And more advanced possibilities.

Meteobridge personalised widgets
Integrate personalised widgets and templates to your existing website. Meteobridge and/or Meteobridge Pro both offer several options to realise this.
Creating widgets is relatively simple. Weerhuisje.nl can be of your support in this.

Text over image
  • Two examples of adding a weather data overlay over an (existing) image on your site.
  • Use of a HTML template with included weather variables. Actual values are being inserted into the template at a preset interval and via FTP uploaded as a standard piece of HTML code into your site.
  • Technique: HTML/css template

  • HTML result (left image):
<div style="position: relative;width: 100%;">
       <img style="position:relative; width:50%" src="surfing.jpg" alt="" />
               <h2 style="position: absolute; top: 0px; left: 35px;        width: 100%; ">
                       <span
                               style="
                               color: white;
                               font: bold 13px/45px Helvetica, Sans-Serif;
                               letter-spacing: -1px;
                               background: rgb(0, 0, 0);
                               background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5);  
                               padding: 10px; ">
                               <!-- put weather data label here -->
                               Our local weather:  

                               <!-- put weather data here -->
                               Wind 0.4 Knots, S,  9.3 &deg;C <!-- put actual weather data here -->
                                       <span style="padding:0 5px;"></span>
                       </span>
               </h2>
</div>

<!-- Styling
       Line 2: Width sizes the image
       Line 3: top:, left:, adjusts text position
       Line 7: px/px = font size/line height
       Line 9: fallback color
       Line 10: Last value 0-1 = opacity

Weather underground standalone graphs
  • When using weather underground upload of your weather data.
  • Graphs are being pulled directly from your own weather station data at Wunderground.
  • Total of 13 differnet graphs available.
  • Developed by weather34.com

Temperature - day (Temperature and dewpoint)

Pressure - month (max and low)


Steel series gauges
  • Steel series gauges have been devleoped by Gerrit Grünwald. Mark Crossley built a set of weather variables around this.
  • Gauges built on HTML canvas and javascript code.
  • Uses a HTTP request. Makes it possible to update very frequently (seconds).
  • More complicated to integrate into a website.
  • Gauges for temperature, humidity, pressure, wind, rain, UV, Solar.

Wind speed gauge.

Wind speed with additional text weather data.


Exporting graphs (exclusively on MB pro)
  • Choose existing template or generate your own.
  • Graphs, when placed on your site can be tweaked by user. Switching on/off weather variables and selecting time frame.

All-in-one graph - shiftable time frame


Min/max/avg  -  shiftable time frame

Sun hours per month

Sunhours per year - shaded part: daylight time
