 #DressForSTEM March 14th may seem like just any other day, but for many it has become National PI (π) Day. It has grown into a day to celebrate mathematics specifically the ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter which is approximately 3.14159. We often don’t realize it, but PI is being used around us every day. When we use our GPS for directions it uses PI to calculate locations. NASA scientists and also engineers use it to study the various characters of planets. Those in aviation use it to calculate flight time, how much fuel they will need on their trip, and to design airplanes. Many who celebrate eat different kinds of pies, some pizza restaurants join in the festivities with deals of $3.14 for their pizza pies. But…

Choosing the Right Telemetry Method for Your Remote Water Monitoring Applications

Also, consider if your network is mixed; where some stations are urban, and others are remote. Next, assess what the data will be used for and how critical the data is. For example, will the transmitted data be used for flood forecasting, emergency management and response, or long-term trends and analysis. It is also an imperative to consider who will consume the environmental data you collect. Will it be just your organization or…
