In the world of weather stations there is a lot of cooperation and exchange of information.
Below follows a (not exhaustive) list of commercial organizations and associations where this Weather Station cooperates with.
The following list is strictly random.
The first word of each paragraph connects (if possible) to the page on their website with our data.

UK Metoffice - The 'Weather Observations Website' reflects recent advances in technology and how weather observations can be made.
At the same time, the growing world of social networking online makes it relatively easy for anyone to get involved and share their weather observations.
The Met Office is helping to co-ordinate the growth of the weather observing community in the UK, by asking anyone to submit the observations they are taking.
This can be done using all levels of equipment, so there are no cost restrictions.
European Weather Network
WeatherCloud is a real-time weather social network formed by more than 4,500 weather observers from around the world.
It is based in the European Union,
is available in 10 languages, including English, and has very nice graphics.
Weather Underground is probably the "most well known" cooperation between personal weather stations.
Originally from the USA but they is now providing free, real-time online weather information to millions of Web users around the world
They are committed to delivering the most reliable, accurate weather information possible. Their state-of-the-art technology monitors conditions and forecasts for locations across the world.

AWEKAS is an acronym for Automatisches WEtterKArten System
(= automatic weather map system) and is, as the name suggests, a system which produces overview maps from the weather data provided by participating private weather stations.
The data is made available to AWEKAS by the weather station operators who upload a small text or CSV file to their own website.
AWEKAS then collects this data automatically, and processes it to provide up to date maps.
AWEKAS works automatically and provides every second current maps about temperature, wind, precipitation, barometric pressure,
and maps with current weather conditions and weather warnings.
If you want to participate to the AWEKAS project, it is obviously entirely free.
Citizen Weather Observer Program (CWOP) s a group of ham radio operators and other private citizens mostly around the USA that have volunteered the use of their weather data
for education, research and use by interested parties.
It is a public-private partnership with three main goals:
- to collect weather data contributed by citizens;
- to make these data available for weather services and homeland security; and
- to provide feedback to the data contributors so that they have the tools to check and improve their data quality.
In fact, the web address, wxqa.com, stands for weather quality assurance.
HAMweather, WeatherForYou, PWS Weather is a group of companies providing millions of forecasts through the main site every month,
images (or Weather Snapshots) for tens of thousands of web sites around the world and full custom-branded weather pages for other web sites designed to match their look.
Over ten thousand stations are now registered to participate in the personal weather station program, now known as PWSweather.com.
