The University of Bergen's Measure Your City citizen science project is one of the most interesting LoraWAN and The Things Network initiatives going on in Norway. Close to 100 persons have already built and brought home a weather station, and are now contributing weather data wirelessly over the air four times per hour.
Scientists from the CoCliServ project are gathering and analyzing the data, investigating what types of knowledge and services we need locally in Bergen to adapt to a changing climate.
On Monday, 2 December, the University will be hosting an open and free Measure Your City information event at Marineholmen Makerspace at Thormøhlens Gate 41e. You are all invited, regardless of if you have built a station or not (please note that we will not build new stations this evening). Doors open at 5 PM.
The lead developer of the weather station, Diana Wildschut, will be present together with some of her colleagues.
At 6:30 PM, one of the scientists from the CoCliServ team will give a presentation about some of the initial findings of the project. Malfunctioning weather station owners are encouraged to bring their hardware in for some collaborative debugging.
There will, of course, be plenty of time for discussing ideas, chatting with old and new friends, experimenting and hacking – over coffee and cake! No RSVP is necessary.
One more thing – if you have been thinking about going to The Things Conference in Amsterdam next year, you can now take 15 percent off your conference pass using our very own voucher code: WE-RUN-BERGEN. Enjoy!
