Before carrying further search in Spain and trying to contact someone there, don’t you think that Windy developers should first check if the coordinates of these stations are wrong or correct in their database? And in any case it is not up to @pinchof to clarify this issue !
RE: Stations misplaced
RE: Low Bandwidth models for sailors?
You ask me whether somebody will answer your question ? I do not know :)
Then you ask about the possibility to receive Windy via a satellite connection offering 100kbps.
Inmarsat Fleet One that is claimed to provide 100kbps is considered, by Inmarsat, as a broadband device to get internet at sea.
But to be sure I would prefer to ask a demonstration to a distributor or to contact the manufacturer. I’ve never used this type of equipment, so I can’t give you any assurance that it works, at least with Windy mobile app.
By the way your first question was about a low bandwidth device, which means for me a satellite phone or similar which allow only to receive GRIB files for weather forecast in addition to calls, sms, email, but no internet connection.
Do you use the website or the mobile app?
On website, click on More layer to show a webcam symbol which allow to display all webcams on the map.
In the mobile app, you find it in the menu
But I’ve never seen « live » images from these webcam on Windy.
RE: Wind knots
It is not possible to display a grid of wind speed figures.The only way is to use the weather picker and to move it on the map.
If you are familiar with the Beaufort scale, you may also use the following settings of Wind:
RE: Forecasting for sailors
I don’t think that the Iridium GO can give access to broadband internet and specially to Windy. Here are some information from Ground Control, a distributor of Iridium GO:
« At an advertised 2.5 Kilobits per second (1 Kbps realistically), the Iridium GO is not a solution to those looking for workable connection for normal Internet use ..... A single standard sized web page (with images) on average takes about 10 minutes to load... A connection to the Internet using the Iridium GO (also known as data minutes) are limited to authorized smartphone and tablet apps, so your existing apps on your device will unfortunately not work over the GO.... Our conclusion is that Internet access with the Iridium GO should be for those who are very patient, preferably with images turned off ». Windy being only animated images, I doubt that you could get it at sea.
You already use an Iridium GO, so try to get Windy with it and let us know !
RE: Forecast-Model comparison in APP-Version
With the mobile App you have also the possibility to compare the forecasts of the models displayed by Windy. Just click as shown on these screenshots. They are from iOS app, I suppose it’s the same with Android app.
RE: How can I access historical data?
Rain ACCUMULATION for at least the past DAY.
This is one huge requirement that only seems like "history", and that is just trying to discover how much rain I got, even for the past few hours. We just had a huge front move through, and I had spread fertilizer out, and need to know if I should or should not add more water.
You know that rain or other parameters shown on Windy are forecasts but not observations. To know the right amount of rain you have got in your fields better to use rain gauge. Otherwise in case of convective rain you should be very disappointed.
