Ws2300 manipulates the LaCrosse WS-2300 weather station via its RS232 interface. It can read and write values, and can continuously log data from WS-2300 to a file or SQL database.
I use this program with a WS-2300, and others have reported it working on a WS-2357. It probably works with every LaCrosse WS-23xx weather station that connects to a computer using serial or USB.
The primary differences between Ws2300 and LaCrosse's software is:
There is a man page, a change log, a README.txt and a file describing the WS-2300's memory map. The WS-2300 is described at its home page.
If ws2300 doesn't suite your needs, perhaps open2300 will. Its home page is: http://www.lavrsen.dk/twiki/bin/view/Open2300/WebHome. The project itself is based at Source Forge. Here is its project page: http://sf.net/projects/open2300.
Ws2300 is based on open2300, and owes a lot to it. Open2300 was developed by Kenneth Lavrsen.
The WS-2300 was reverse engineered mainly by people on the German language Weather Station Forum, which is located at: http://www.wetterstationsforum.de/phpBB/viewforum.php?f=28.
