The Weather Monitoring Network consists of a set of multi-parametric meteorological stations located in the national territory, a telephone communication system to transport signals to a central server and a center for acquisition, archiving, analysis and distribution of meteorological data and information .
A station is called multi-parametric because it is composed of the following sensors and data acquisition systems:
Davis Vantage Pro2 stations, meteorological measurement equipment that is composed of an integrated set of sensors for the visualization and real-time recording of data through a console and a data logger that can be via USB or IP, through which, using the Weatherlink software and a PC, information can be accessed and / or downloaded.

HOBO RX3000 stations, equipment that stores data from the vast majority of weather variables, and send them via Ethernet, Wi-fi or 3G to the HOBOlink® application in the cloud for remote management from any computer, tablet or Smartphone Unlike the Davis Ventage Pro2 weather stations, the measurement of wind speed and direction is made using a sonic sensor.
