Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 200)


Internet SCADA was developed to widen the coverage span of the SCADA system. In this section, a double checking scheme for Internet SCADA Environment is analyzed. This is to improve the accuracy of data and to improve the performance of SCADA Systems. This scheme uses data from weather API Providers. Many API Provider such as Google, Yahoo, etc have Weather API’s. Weather API’s can give weather condition and forecast about a specific place.
