WeatherNetViewer Wettersoftware


Weather on board from the Internet

WeatherNetViewer is a very easy to use Weather Software, which uses weather data off the Internet (www.meteoserver.net). Many innovations / improvements are integrated, making an evaluation of the meteorological data even simpler and more precise, e.g. in the form of impressing animations. If you can live without an SSB-radio and you have access to the Internet, WeatherNetViewer is an attractive alternative.

The access to the weather data is already fully integrated in the program. This allows you to download the weather data in seconds to your PC, and to view it offline for days. This is ideal for users who may not always have an internet connection, or who are using a mobile or satellite phone, as the data is just downloaded once in a new highly compressed format called MSD.

The size of the weather data file of the western Mediterranean (see image) is only 120 KB “small” and could be downloaded even with an iridium phone. It uses the latest internet technologies to deliver the Data in a flexible and efficient way.

Easy to use

In contrast to other weather systems the presentation of the meteorological data is very intuitive and presents the data in a very simple and uncomplicated way – just as you’d expect it from a modern software. With only one mouse-click you will get all forecast values in plain text. The global background map is of course included in the software.

These data indicate the values ​​that have surrounded and you actually surrounded you.With these Data you are in a position to verify the forecast data by yourself. You can download the synoptic data from the last 7 days. This is interesting for the use of digital logbooks such as TripCon.

Satellites images

You can access a large selection of satellite pictures. In addition there is a special selection of satellite images which are suitable for animation. The past weather runs as an animation on your screen, while you can change the presentation, zoom or shift . Remarkable is the special type of animation: an image transformation process creates an extremely brilliant picture of the slide show .

The Software

The WeatherNetViewer visualizes all data and satellite images. The presentation of different parameters can be combined. The remarkable thing is the extreme fine resolution of the pictures. With the new “zoom slider” you can zoom in and out a selected area.

The symbols and representations are adapted to modern times to get a quick overview. We deliberately did not include outdated meteorological “cryptology” as Wind feathers from the early 20th century. These signs are completely unnecessary in today’s technology. You should not have to study meteorology to be able to understand the general weather situation. With the current technology and graphic capabilities of WeatherNetViewer it is much easier to analyze complex meteorological data.

Navigator Edition (Meteo-Route-Control / Weather routing)

You can create the planned route on a map similar to a navigation map*. MeteoCom calculates the weather data using the journey’s estimated time and colors the planned route according to the weather situation. Thus you can see easily when, at what time, and on what route section unfavorable weather conditions will be expected. The route can be modified and exported, if necessary. This feature is meant to control a route realistically, using a GPS, from the meteorological site. With a simple click on the “Play” button the sailing trip will be animated as a movie. A weather data overlay on navigation charts is therefore completely unnecessary.
