We want to help you succeed

Built on science and trusted by ranchers and land managers.

Why We Made this

Our goal is to help make it easier for Ranchers and Land Managers to collect, manage and use precipitation observations to support management decisions. MyRAINge Log is designed with rangeland management in mind, bringing together cutting edge web technology, climate data, and visualization tools focused on collecting and analyzing cumulative precipitation from remote, unattended rain gauges.

This tool emerged from discussions with ranchers and land managers in central Arizona on the need for an online tool specifically designed around the type of infrequent, cumulative precipitation observations often collected at remote, rangeland sites. Our tool adds unique ‘climate context’ and near-real time precipitation alerts based on gridded climate estimates. These features help put your data in context (“Does this precipitation observation indicate drought or not?”) helping you to quickly interpret your data and support management decisions.
