The Louisiana Agriclimatic Information System (LAIS) is a network of 23 automated weather stations operated by the LSU AgCenter.
The network is managed by the Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering (BAE).
Each station consists of a datalogger that observes several electronic instruments on a 3-second interval.
Output is generated by the datalogger:
- Every 3 seconds (This data is normally not archived)
- Every minute
- Daily, at midnight
- Daily, at 7am
As of this writing, the database contains data from late August, 2001, to present.
The Microsoft SQL database consists of two tables. One contains the one-minute data for all stations. The other contains hourly and daily (both midnight and 7am) summaries for all stations.
