Have you ever thought about how important a decentralized meteorological system is? from data collection, storage and processing?
Meteorology is one of the sciences that study the Earth’s atmosphere, which focuses on the study of atmospheric processes and weather forecasting.
Do you know how important meteorology is?
If we know it’s going to rain, we take the umbrella when we leave the house. But an important tip on time helps us in many other things. Among them, to evaluate the conditions of the road, when we travel, and also for agriculture.
Farmers often need to plant at the beginning of a rainy season because the seeds need water to germinate. On the other hand, the forecast of floods, frost or lack of rainfall can avoid damages.
Who gets this information can defraud the results to use in their favor, such as mass manipulation for political purposes for example?
And do you know how this information is obtained and manipulated today?
And how important is it to get this information in a decentralized way, proof of forgery and store it in something that is public, accessible to anyone and permanently?
I’ve been thinking about how to have a decentralized weather forecasting system.
For example, we would need to capture the information as a measure of temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, wind, precipitation, solar radiation, water quality, geographical location, among others.
And send it to a place where such information is permanently accessible and has no way of defrauding such information
I’ve been thinking of using a system like this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Solar-Powered-WiFi-Weather-Station-V20/
It has a low cost of production, thousands of people, such as cattle ranchers, etc. may have one or more mini weather stations capturing data and sending it to a blockchain like Waves that allows you to store a small amount of information and is quite cheap.
Processing such information is a very complicated task, how can you prevent this information from being processed without being tricked by a third party?
I think it is possible to use Ankr as a blockchain for decentralized computing, it is an alternative to centralized data centers, this information could then be extracted from the blockchain of waves, processed and sent back to the Waves blockchain where it would be accessible for anyone to analyze and check the weather conditions in your region or on the planet as a whole, only then can we have genuine climate information without worrying about information distorted by governments or malicious companies.
Anyone have suggestions?
