The SAMS Data Warehouse
The Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies team developed a basic instruction on how to connect general bee colony monitoring hardware to SAMS Data Warehouse (DW). This instruction will ease the process of sending data from any general bee colony monitoring system to the SAMS Data Warehouse for storage and analysis. The Data Warehouse is an online platform which functions like a virtual workspace, where beekeepers can store, access and assess their bee data.
The SAMS DW is a universal system, which can operate with different data inputs and have flexible data processing algorithms. Users can sign up into the DW using their own email/password or google account. Each user is associated with one or more workspaces, which should be configured based on apiary configuration.
Then following steps have to be performed on the device (hardware) to send data to the warehouse:
- Acquire access token. This token is used by the DW to authenticate and authorize the request.
- Post the data to DW. There is a single endpoint for posting data to the DW – https://sams.science.itf.llu.lv/api/data. The access token should be provided in the Authorization header and the request body can contain multiple data packages.
Reports about posted measurements are immediately available in the UI under the Reports section. Additional debugging information is available in the Dashboard (last 10 received measurements) and Devices (last events and errors).
- For any questions related to the Data Warehouse and connection of the hardware to it please contact the team from Latvia University of Life Sciences and Technologies, Faculty of Information Technologies.
