a feature that I found very interesting in "competitors" like emoncms.org is the ability to preprocess data using some simple algorithms to be applied to received data before saving. Just an example... a classic KW/h counter.... your arduino device send number of "pulses" in a certain time period (read from energy equipment)... each pulse is 1W.... emoncms is able to convert these pulses in KWh... that is calculate how many pulses accumulated in last hour and put this value on your graph.
Another example... emoncms can calculate the average of the value received in same day or hour so that your graph rappresent not the value you sent through your ardunino but an elaboration of that value. Is it possibile with thingspeak do the same?
The advantage is obvious... with the same data sent by your device you can create not just one graph but more rappresentation of the same data, without alter your device.

I have a similar question.
Is there a way to perform some calculations on the raw data sent before displaying. For example, sending data x i want to display the function y = a * log (b * x) c?
Or to do any kind of smoothing with the previous data?
The idea is to reduce the size of the source code for the microcontroller and its load.
I think this would be another clear advantage of your service.
