I’ve been working on a project which requires data logging from a mobile device over several days. I came across a neat site which supports simple uploading and view/export of data, from numerous sources. It’s called thingspeak.com.  Once you have data loaded into a channel, there an excellent tool which supports the execution of Matlab code on the data. You can even display the results of your matlab calculations in the channel window! There’s also an “Act!” ability, which allows you to set up reactions to thresholds and so forth.

Thingspeak seems tailored for the IOT world, but this is a compelling opportunity for biologists, who may want to log environmental data into an easily displayed cloud location.

Here’s an example of the channel I created, and below is an iframe object, which shows the most recent measurements made, dynamically!
