Who Invented the Rain Gauge?

The first rain gauge is believed to have been invented more than 2,000 years ago when rulers of the ancient Choson Dynasty (now Korea) directed all villages to measure rainfall. The information was then incorporated into a formula to determine the potential harvest of each farm.
