Abstract

Measuring accurate rainfall at a given area is often essential to agriculture. Farmers in Bangladesh do not have reliable rainfall data very much. Therefore, they are still enduring an immense loss of their crop. The previous year's rainfall data will also provide vital knowledge for predicting rainfall. The accessible rain gauge in the market is mostly costly and thus not sustainable for farmers. In view of this, this paper aims to design and implement a low cost rain gauge that can quantify the amount of rainfall in a given region with industry standard precision. Around the same time, the retrieved data is stored on an online archive so that everyone can view the former and existing data. As a result, the estimate of rainfall will be eased based on the data stored.
