I bought this when OReilly had a one of their 50% off sales on Ardiono books. Since then I've bought a Rasberry Pi and have been trying to work out which project to do with it, so I wanted to read up on the assorted microelectronics sensor and communications books I'd accrued.

This nicely summed up a number of different projects, all of which you could approach after just reading 'Getting Started with Arduino" also from OReilly. I found, though, after reading it, that I was a bit puzzled. The cir...more
Some good basics if you are just getting started with arduino and have environmental monitoring in mind. One thing to keep in mind is that this is focused on specific gases and environmental stuff, not necessarily things like temperature, humidity and weather data.

You will definitely want to access the online code samples. The book seems to 'waste' a lot of space printing out the full code for the projects, so there is actually quite a bit less content than you'd expect.
Good little introduction to the kinds of the weather stations that can be built with the arduino. Good fun.
