I misunderstood the question, the Data Loggin Interval is 30 Minutes. 1 minute uploads to Weather underground. Any suggestions on either setting?

That's why some of your lines appear flat. Your logger is only storing 2 data samples per hour. So if you have to upload history files to WeatherUnderground to recover from being disconnected you are only getting one data reading every 30 minutes from your logger.

I don't even have fresh gas for the lawn mower!
Maybe you can siphon some of that antique gas in the Buick?! OTOH, that gas may be too powerful of that little mower!!! :o

Dear N4KHQ, Blick, and WeatherCat Davis station caregivers,

I misunderstood the question, the Data Loggin Interval is 30 Minutes. 1 minute uploads to Weather underground. Any suggestions on either setting?

The Davis data logger is effectively a weather data backup when WeatherCat isn't running.  So if you want to keep your WeatherCat data uniform, the best choice is to set your data logger to the same value that you have WeatherCat's data sampling interval.  The sampling rate is set in the Misc2 pane of the preferences and is described on starting on page 169 in the WeatherCat 3 manual.  Setting the data logger is described on page 69.  We also have a WeatherCat Wiki entry that explains the trade-offs in setting the Davis data logger:

http://wiki.trixology.com/index.php?title=Capacity_of_the_Davis_data-logger_to_store_weather_data_depending_on_the_chosen_sampling_interval

I have my sampling interval and data logger set to 5 minutes.  That means if WeatherCat or my computer are disabled, I can go for almost 9 days before I would lose any data.  With the speed of commerce, I would hope that's enough time to make whatever repairs or replacements are necessary.

Cheers, Edouard

Dear X-Air, Blick, Reinhard, and WeatherCat fans with a sense of humor - I think?  ???

Maybe the next version of WC will feature multiple-camera support! [lol] cmu:-)

Maybe the next version of WC will feature multiple-camera support!

 [wink] . . . . . . But, but, but, . . . . I think X-Air meant that as a joke! . . . .  [biggrin]

Meanwhile, I'll probably dial back the fade to 70%... at least until the grass starts to really grow! :P

 [wink] . . .  Never mind that!!  Will somebody please find the setting in WeatherCat that controls how fast the grass grow? . . . Today's high was 57.8˚ F (14.3˚ C).  However by the weekend, the highs are supposed to be 76˚ F (24.4˚ C) and I know what the grass is going to start doing!  I don't even have fresh gas for the lawn mower! . . . . .
. . . . .  lol(1)

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Time-lapse movies:

This feature is working very well. Most recently I changed my settings to 60 second capture image with 5 seconds per hour of playing time per hour captured, resulting in a 26.5 MB daily movie file. I like this better because it seems to have eliminated the lag time when playing the larger movie on my iPhone. The movies at all settings have played fine on my iMac but the larger files have a loading lag on iOS. Here is a summary of my tested settings and the resulting file sizes so far.

File Sizes
1. 5 min capture rate, 15 sec per hour, capture image at 640x480, movie at 800x600=2.2 MB
2. 3 min capture rate, 25 sec per hour, capture image at 640x480, movie at 800x600=3.6 MB
3. 2 min capture rate, 25 sec per hour, capture image at 640x480, movie at 800x600=3.9 MB
4. 1 min capture rate, 25 sec per hour, capture image at 640x480, movie at 800x600=10.3 MB
5. Same as #4 with 0% crossfade=10.1 MB
6. Same as #4 with 100% crossfade=19.7 MB
7. 30 sec capture rate, 5 sec per hour, 0% crossfade=20.5 MB
8. Same as #7 with capture image at 12800x960, movie at 1280x960=52.3 MB
9. Same as #7 with 1 min capture rate=26.5 MB

Also, you want to set your Source image size and your Movie size to the same size for best results.
