National Rainfall Database

Postby Simonvw » Tue Jun 03, 2008 3:12 pm

We're building a national rainfall database. It's a web 2.0 initiative and you can enter your own data and compare it to others.

It's at at <a href="http://www.ourpatch.com.au/australia/rain_gauge">OurPatch Rain guage</a>

Look forward to your feedback.

I don't know about this. They sure ask for a lot of personal info just to plot a rainfall figure. This forum requires far less info. Yes I did note that they will not sell the personal info but nothing about them giving it away.

I am not cool with it.

Won't give it away either

Hi Fu, we're not going to give it away either. We built the rain guage for the use of our members and we have no intention of selling or giving away the data.

BTW I agree with your comments on personal information. I think you'll find we've addressed this issue. We have changed our registration for and it does not ask for much.

Any ideas for additional functionality are appreciated. One suggestion is the ability for people to add what they are growing alongside the rainfall. We think we'll do that.

Simon - Managing Director. :D
