A tool that accesses live community weather
The Weather Exchange was developed to be a free PC desktop application that accesses live community weather from the world's largest FREE personal weather station network. Here are some key features of "Weather Exchange":
· The Weather Exchange Network is the world's largest free weather station network. We emphasize the word "FREE" - our network consists of personal weather station owners spanning the globe with nothing more than a personal weather station (available from Ambient Weather for as little as $189), Ambient's Virtual Weather Station PC software and an Internet connection. This information is automatically sent to the Wunderground.com server, and collected by Ambient's FREE Weather Exchange program.
Live Neighborhood Weather:
· The Weather Exchange provides up-to-the-minute live weather from homes, schools, businesses and official weather stations throughout the world. There is likely a weather station in your town or even your neighborhood.
· Simply enter your City, State, Zip Code, Airport Code or Country, and The Weather Exchange finds and sorts the closest weather stations in your area and displays them in easy to read graphics and tabular form.
· The Weather Exchange displays normal and record high and low temperatures, normal precipitation to date, sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonphase, current weather conditions and 5-day forecast. The Weather Exchange is your 24/7 Weatherman!
· The Wunderground.com servers store this information on the server in text databases. Need to know the hourly rain during the raging thunderstorm yesterday? No problem, the data is available in graphical and text format.
· The Weather Exchange knows your exact longitude and latitude and generates a real-time star chart.
· The Weather Exchange displays a tremendous array of real-time and animated regional and national weather maps. Colored coded temperature, windchill, humidity, dew point, UV, wind, jet stream, radar, visibility, satellite, fronts, snow, and air quality maps turn even the casual weather observer into a meteorologist.
· The radar images pinpoint your exact location, as you watch storms build in your area.
Weather Warnings and Advisories:
· Weather Statements, advisories, severe watches and warnings are color coded and sound visual and audible alarms. Play a different sound for each advisory level.
· Is it raining in your area? The Weather Exchange sounds personal alarms you set based on windspeed, wind chill, temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, rainfall, Dewpoint, heat index, customized for your favorite station or network of stations.
· Create your own personal favorites list and monitor your cabin temperature, parent's house, or favorite vacation destination.
· The Weather Pane is a photo album of weather scenes taken by professional amateur photographers. Post your own weather photos online.
· Create real-time comma separated data files for use in other applications, such as Home Automation systems.
Hides Away while you Work:
· The Weather Exchange hides away, displays the temperature and weather advisory/alarm level on your taskbar, and utilizes few resources.
Works Seamlessly Across your Local Area Network:
· Weather Exchange uses Internet Explorer browser technology to access data from the network - no clumsy proxy server addresses to worry about.
· Absolutely no Spyware or Advertising Programs installed on your computer with The Weather Exchange
· Why ruin a good thing?
