The AirPi is a Raspberry Pi shield kit, capable of recording and uploading information about the atmosphere.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Make your own Atmospheric monitoring station by either AirPi (Raspberry Pi shield kit) or AirCasting. The platforms allow you to record, map and share real-world atmospheric data. If you are not up for building your own you can still access data from these devices from either the website or free apps using the CrowdMap options.
