Since last post we’ve done a lot of features, but I try to explain what we do now.
We try to make redesign of MeteoStone and make it more useful. Also, we made some tests for getting
METAR data from airports.
We also planning to increase number of banners for weather station owners, so if you want to get banner
with your style or picture, just drop us a line.
That’s all that I can say now, but it’s not all in general
We announced a new update of MeteoStone.
The main featuers described in newsletter, so here I’ve wrote only short list of it:
- Now every user has its own homepage.
- We added radar page, so you can see current events and the content provided by users over the world.
- We added disasters information on radar map.
- You can add your own content to MeteoStone!
- Now you can send invites to your friends and neighbours to join you on MeteoStone.
- We added simple bugreport feature.
If anyone have problems with registration on site (you don’t get regstration letter, something else), please save feedback here. It’s possible what we have bug with registration but we can’t reproduce it without your help.
We have software for get data from your station (now we support stations with clientraw.txt export) to MeteoStone authomatically. It’s alpha version, so we can’t recommend it to all, but if you wish to test it, you are welcome!
We have updated the site. The main feature is the developer API. Information about interfaces you can find at meteostone.com/api
Also, we have opened discussing groups for MeteoStone API at http://groups.google.com/group/meteostone-dev , so you are welcome.
But it’s not all We make notifications about messages around your locations. If anybody wrote messages not far than 10 (for both, latitude & longtitude) from your location, you will see a little panel at locations list panel.
You can set messages “readed” by clicking on (x) icon, so you will not see this panel while geting new message. Or, you can see a new messages by clicking on (<-) icon, so you will redirect on messages panel and will see messages around corresponding location. Messages became “old” if it wrote older than day ago or if you mark them read.
We hope to see your feedback about it. Is it useful?
Hi! We have made some ui changes. I hope, weather map will be more usable after it. If you didn’t knew what you can move\zoom map and see messages from locations of map viewport in Messages “tab”, now you know it.
I saw here several messages without text, so I have a question: Is anybody have problems with messaging on site?
ps. I will glad to get any feedback about MeteoStone. Just drop a line.
Did you see “Gary’s weather forecasting stone” equipment?
Our site is web2.0 analog of it. I know, that I can define current temperature with presision of about 10C, but I think, what Gary’s stone is more powerful instrument. You know about all weather condtions around and you can say anybody about it without use of special therms like humidity and complex data like temperature\pressure\etc.
Therefore, we, as example, use an icons for user interface on site instead the big table with hand-entered fields. But I hope, that this model of weather site is more powerful, because current meteorological institutes, have only limit number weather stations. And I suppose, that weather data from users (and not only) can bring more good result in Web2.0 epoch, that data from limit number of weather organization stations.
You are welcome!
Today we released MeteoStone. If you have any questions or found any problem on site, just comment here.
