The WHIN Data Portal

Listen up educators, researchers, and data connoisseurs! The WHIN Data Portal is live and licenses are available (FREE for education!). The WHIN Living Laboratory spreads across a 10-county region, making it the largest agricultural and manufacturing Living Laboratory in the country.  Purdue, and specifically Purdue Agriculture are partnering in this effort to advance technology.  The goal being to improving operations with regard to profit and sustainability.  By utilizing IoT (Internet of Things) technology, the living lab continually collects data from real farmers and manufacturing facilities, local to us in north-central Indiana. 

To access the WHIN data, you will need to know how to use an API (application program interface). You’ll be able to get data in csv (comma separated values) or json (javascript object notation) formats. There is more to come, but for now, you could access over 100 weather stations with data taken every 15 minutes. These stations also include soil moisture at different depths.

Here in Purdue Digital Agriculture, our researchers have collected some great pieces of data. Please stay tuned, because we are diligently working on methods to best catalog, store and make it available to you!  For the time being, updates on our current projects can be found, here
