Är man intresserad av väder i allmänhet, och vind i synnerhet, så lever vi i en fantastisk tid. All denna data som finns tillgänglig på webben, i mobilen och till sjöss. Och snygga verktyg för att presentera den. Nu senast Windyty.
Tipstack till Hans Johansson.
Hi, my name is Ivo, and I love the wind!
I am an addicted kiter, helicopter and jet pilot, who seeks the wind, waves, METARs, TAFs and powder snow almost constantly. Since programming is my passion I coded Windyty.com as my pet project. All credits must go to Cameron Beccario, who programmed the Earth project and offered its codes as open source. While basic mathematics behind it remains the same, I completely rewrote the code so now it can run many times faster.
Windyty.com is advertisement free and a strictly non-commercial project.
GFS forecast model, produced by NOAA, is the major source of weather data. Forecast data are updated four times a day. Beautiful forecast for location detail are produced by Meteoblue.com and are based on NMM, NEMS or GFS mathematical models with different resolution, based on location (more info here).
