Windfinder, one of the world’s leading weather services for water sports, introduces interactive weather maps on its website and in its apps, which make it easy to view wind direction, wind speed, air temperature, etc. and the spots/sites for water sports activities on a map.
Key features of the weather maps:
• find the windiest and best locations for sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, surfing etc. with one single view
• full screen map with zooming and panning
• very low data consumption (ideal for mobile usage on smartphones and offshore sailing)
• easy switching between location/spot forecasts and the new mapsJohannes Bönniger, chief technology officer at Windfinder says: “This is a huge improvement and the kick off for a wave of new features and improvements like new map layers for precipitation and waves, etc.” Thomas Glas, the chief app developer, adds: We have successful apps for Android and iOS but we listened carefully to our users and wanted to improve the user experience.”
