AOSC Students Build Micronet to Bring Hyperlocal Weather Reports to Campus
If you want to know the current temperature at the University of Maryland, you may need to get a little more specific. That’s because the temperature often varies by two degrees or more from one end of campus to the other.
On one Wednesday afternoon in June, it was 75.6 degrees outside of the Atlantic Building, but a balmier 77.3 degrees at the A.V. Williams Building. The UMD golf course, with its ample grass and open space, is generally cooler than both of those locations in spring and summer.
