I’m just starting on a project. I want to log a variety of sensor data, store the data in the cloud, and auto-create visualizations that interested parties can view. I’m not sure which tool to choose, ideally one that combines data storage and vis. And hopefully something that will probably be around for years.
I was thinking of using Google Spreadsheets, programming scripts to gather data from the imps and create/update charts. I’ve heard the API/interface can be a bit unreliable.
The Wolfram Data Drop looks interesting, especially with the ready-to-roll imp interface and data processing functionality. It’s new though, and it’s not clear to me what the cost implications are going to be into the future.
Plotly looks nice, but perhaps not really geared towards storing data from lots of devices and doing custom processing of data.
Any opinions and experiences on good tools for this kind of thing?
