We plan to establish a wireless sensor network at the Desert Botanical Garden to measure and report on
soil conditions. Our goal is to collect salinity, moisture, and temperature
readings from interesting locations in the Garden's Harriet K. Maxwell
Wildflower Trail area. We then
plan to store the sensor data in a database and make it available through
graphical and textual presentations on the web. The figure below shows the
system architecture overlaid on a map of the study area.
