[ History ]
Rain measurements were reported in ancient literature in India A.C. 400, Palestine 200 A.C. in China around 1247.
The first standardized rain gauge was built in Korea in 1441 by Prince Munjong, son of King Sejong the Great.
In 1639 Benedetto Castelli, a student of Galileo, it made measurements of rainfall using a cylindrical container made of glass, where it measured the water level after the rain. In 1662 Christopher Wren invented the rocking rain gauge, the prototype of the modern rain gauges, which was perfected in 1670 by Robert Hooke.
Up to about 10-20 years ago it was indicated as rain gauges those instruments that in fact they had no way to record the time evolution of the rain and which were controlled to a daily basis.
Unlike the pluviograph was a tool that could, by means of a mechanical registration system, to graphically report the amount of rain fall in a certain time interval
With the development of electronics and then computer science , the pluviographs have gone increasingly asserting itself.
The graphics are perfected to the last detail to make using simple, fluid and pleasant.
