Has anyone linked their Vantage Vue and Davis software on to a website...so the info can be displayed?

I'd like to do this, but just need some pointers on where to begin reading the "how-to's"

Thanks for any direction!

You'll need another piece of software from Ambient Weather

http://www.ambientweather.com/

That's what I use, anyway.

There are a lot of options.  

First off, you will need the Davis WeatherLink package.  That includes Davis's software and a data logger that plugs into your Vue console and then to your computer.  There are USB and RS-232 versions of the WeatherLink package.  I highly recommend the RS-232 (serial) version -- the USB version gave me all sorts of problems.  If your computer doesn't have an RS-232 port (mine does not), a good USB<->RS-232 adapter will work.

You can use the Davis software to create web pages and upload them to a server.  The software is rather "old school" in look and feel, but it does work.  It does not provide "real-time" updating, though, to your own website.  I believe it will do "rapid fire" updates to weather underground if you've set up an account there, though. There is a software "plug in" that you need to get from Weather Underground to enable this in WeatherLink.

I use a program called WeatherDisplay for gathering data from my Davis and sending that info to my website.  It's not free, and there's a steep learning curve, but it has the most features.  A free program that works well is called Cumulus -- worth looking into.  But again, the Davis software that you're forced to buy along with the (necessary) data logger will work, too.

You can see my personal weather website here:  http://www.wrightwoodweather.com
And you can see my Weather Underground page here:  http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/getForecast?query=92397&sp=KCAWRIGH6
Finally, you can get all the info and help you can imagine here: http://www.wxforum.net/

WeatherView32 does a good job also.  It has some real pretty graphics for the instruments.
