SSD Aquaponics Tank

This past week, I’ve been working more on automating the aquaponics tank at the Boulder hackerspace. The first step was to be able to monitor the system remotely. Using a Raspberry Pi B+, the data.sparkfun.com service and Google Charts, I was successfully able to post the tank temperature in (almost) real time via the web.

This chart pulls data from the original data.sparkfun.com stream, found here. I used this tutorial to figure out how to modify the HTML for my needs.

Now that I’ve figured out how to read one variable, adding more data should be no problem.
