Weather Underground launches interactive weather map on the Internet
Weather Underground announced the availability of its new interactive weather map. WunderMap is an interactive visual display of weather information that is plotted and overlaid on a map interface. Users can choose from a variety of weather layers, including animated radar, current conditions, severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings, live webcam images and animated infrared or visible satellite imagery showing cloud coverage.
Users will find the new feature useful in that it provides a meaningful and uniform representation of multiple types of weather data in an easy to use, interactive format. The level of user-interactivity that can be achieved with the WunderMap makes it a powerful tool for avid meteorologists, while still maintaining a clean and intuitive design for the casual weather observer.
