This info was recently obtained from a major client who also sold a Lucrative Interactive Weather Sponsorship with ZoomRadar TM as the centerpiece of the deal. The deal was made during the bottom of the economic downturn for more money than the previous year! If you are a local weather or news provider this type of technology is becoming a must. It allows your users to see exactly where storms are and where they are moving by allowing then to get hyper-local!!!
Why is ZoomRadar Better? Interactive Storm Tracking allows your visitors to track a storm and with one click find out when that storm will arrive at their house! This is a necessity when allowing users to zoom to a hyper-local level.
Most interactive radars work off a National Image… this takes longer to process and update. Why design Zoom-able Interactive Weather Radar? How often has it rained at your house but only a mile or neighborhood away it stayed dry? It happens all the time! If you want to see precisely where the rain is heading, so you can -say- walk the dog, a static map is of little use to you. Most maps are just not close enough to see exactly where the rain is and where it is heading.
Interactive radar allows people to get up close and personal with the weather, down to their house! And when Severe Weather strikes, it is usually on a very local level.
Zoom Radar TM allows people to prepare for a direct hit or a near miss. We do this for several reasons… The local radar option allows us to provide our users with higher resolution data custom to their local area which updates very quickly often before the NWS websites. Radar data is typically very reliable.
In this case we always have a back up National Mosaic which in most cases allows for the surrounding radars to pick up the slack. In the rare case of a national mosaic outage the opposite is true. This way you are always covered! It allows us to customize to the user needs. How reliable is this service and the weather data? To make a long story short our uptime is over As we mentioned above we have 2 sources of radar data.
This way if, for instance, your local National Weather Service radar is taken down for maintenance, the national mosaic is there to back you up. On the very rare occasion that the national mosaic radar goes down, you have the local radar to back you up. The data comes from 2 different sources which makes the chance of overall data loss very slim. Our fee is strictly based on three things; 1.
