Stroud Water Research Center's EnviroDIY Monitoring Station is a solar powered, waterproof, cellular-enabled data logging device that can connect to a wide variety of environmental sensors. It is based around the EnviroDIY Mayfly Data Logger.

Step-by-step instructions on assembling, programming, and deploying the EnviroDIY Monitoring Station have been followed by many citizens science and research groups around the world. Extensive community-based Q&A is available to help you troubleshoot during the building and programming process. The EnviroDIY Mayfly Data Logger and all components in the EnviroDIY Monitoring Station are open source (CC as Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0). You can also purchase a kit containing all of the hardware needed to build the EnviroDIY Monitoring Station.

Data from an EnviroDIY Monitoring Station can be relayed and shared to the Monitor My Watershed Data Sharing Portal. Monitor My Watershed is an open source, free-to-use platform for sharing and visualizing environmental data that is optimized for environmental IoT applications.

Thanks so much for sharing this @StroudCenterScott! I had heard about the Mayfly data logger from someone who was using it to monitor a stormwater recycling system in the Great Lakes area, and am excited to learn more.

The data portal looks really useful, too. Does it accept data from other data loggers?

Great question, @bhamster. You can send data to the Monitor My Watershed data sharing portal from any Arduino-framework device. Here is a simple, low-level example of a POST request for sending data, but see the Modular Sensors library for more flexible options for sending sensor data from a variety of Arduino devices.
