Short summary
We have compared hourly precipitation totals measured by rain gauges installed and maintained by citizens against professional weather stations managed by the national weather services of Finland, Norway and Sweden. The manufacturer of the citizen rain gauges is Netatmo. Despite the heterogeneity of citizens' measurements, our results show that the two data sources are comparable with each other, though with some limitations. The results also show how to improve the accuracy of citizens' data.
