Remote sensing and meteorological data processing

Remote sensing is the science of observing phenomena and features from a distance. In this presentation we will examine modern methods of recording and processing meteorological data. Specifically, we will present the 9 weather stations installed by the Software Systems and Database Laboratory in the Peloponnese region and list the information they can record. Then, we will refer to the process of transferring the measurements, storing them in the main computer of the laboratory, as well as their processing and analysis.
