Abstract
Weather monitoring has become a quintessential aspect in a variety of fields. Often the challenge lies in fetching accurate information from the site. Having weather information regarding just a particular city isn't sufficient as the weather changes are brisk. In a large city, weather conditions vary from region-to-region. Zone-specific information is needed during such scenarios. Crowdsourcing can be largely influential in such cases. By acquiring resources from a group of service providers, it can aid in the easy retrieval of weather parameters. The most significant players in this approach are the Telecom Service Providers, who have a pool of infrastructure in the form of towers and grids. This infrastructure can be coupled with wireless weather stations to provide real-time weather data. In this paper, we propose a weather monitoring system which is a confluence of embedded systems, crowdsourcing and telecom infrastructure. © 2015 IEEE.
