Mars Met is a web application designed to provide easy access to Mars weather data. This data is collected in a daily basis by the REMS instrument of the Curiosity rover. The data is uploaded to the web site of the CSIC-INTA in XML format. This application relies basically on Django (web framework), PostgreSQL (database), HighCharts (data plots) and Bootstrap (responsive design). Python’s XML SAX and SQLAlchemy modules have been used for the data parsers.

This project is solving the Wish You Were Here challenge.


The aim of this project is to create a flexible Mars Weather web-app that relies on the data provided by the REMS sensor of the Curiosity MSL. The main goal is to provide easy access to the dataset.
