New York, NY, August 18, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Meteorological company InMeteo introduced a new web application today, titled VentuSky (www.ventusky.com) that illustrates meteorological data for the entire world. The uniqueness of this application stems from the volume of data displayed. It provides forecasts for temperature, precipitation, wind, cloud cover, air pressure, snow cover, and other meteorological variables for the entire world. Such a comprehensive meteorological application is unique across the world wide web.
Data are illustrated on a world map. This helps to highlight the interdependence of all atmospheric phenomena. For example, a deep pressure low over Canada clearly influences weather over the Unites States East coast. Wind is illustrated using current lines, offering an interesting depiction of the constant developments in weather phenomena. This helps the map depict the wonderful formations illustrating pressure lows that draw in the air around them. The Earth's currents are in constant motion, and these current lines capture this movement in an amazing way. It thus makes clear where the air is flowing from and to which areas it is going.
The primary significance of the VentuSky application, however, is its practicality. Visitors can easily find out when it will begin to rain in their area and how long the rain will last. Precipitation is illustrated on the map using a colour scale. Dangers that any given precipitation represents was taken into account during the creation of the scale. Blue colours represent low precipitation totals that will not result in floods. Orange and red hues, on the other hand, are dangerous and may bring flooding. For temperature, the colour scale is set up according to the feeling that the given weather evokes in us. For temperature, blue illustrates cool weather while dark red depicts hot desert air.
Thanks to the VentuSky application, visitors get data directly from the numerical models that, just a few years ago, were used solely by meteorologists. The website gathers data from two numerical models. In addition to the relatively well-known data from the American GFS model, it also displays data from the new German model, ICON, which is unique in its high resolution for the entire world. Data from the ICON model in the scope that is offered on the VentuSky website is not available anywhere else on the internet as of yet.
The VentuSky application is freely accessible to everyone around the world, aimed at improving awareness about meteorological events in our atmosphere. Images from the application can be redistributed and thus help achieve this goal.
The VentuSky web application is operated by the Czech company, InMeteo, which works in the analysis and visualisation of meteorological data. It has been providing the general public with meteorological information for over 5 years. InMeteo boasts long-term collaborations with international companies. It has been operating one of the most popular Czech servers, In-počasí, for several years, which helps provide the general public with weather information. It allows anyone to participate in providing weather information, whether through semi-professional meteorological weather stations or by sending short weather news. It has created a one-of-a-kind service on the Czech web that connects people and improves overall awareness about meteorological events in the atmosphere.
