Thank you for developing Windy. We depended on it this summer to help predict wildfire behaviour in combination with VIIRS and MODIS infrared data, lightning monitors and satellite imagery. The Windy forecast models consistently aided in predicting firehead movement in evacuation areas. We sent data to people on the ground who confirmed wind models. I wanted you to be aware of the many of people in remote communities of BC Canada who came to know and rely on Windy through daily and sometimes hourly wildfire updates. Again, thank you.
Excellent question! I often wonder that myself! Did you get a response? Or did you find out? I mean, shouldnt there be complete recordigs of all the different radars in motion? Also, thanks for your time, and being one of those unsung heroes... a teacher!! I wish more people would realize the importance of gaining knowledge, and passing it on. And that it's technically our duty as human beings to do so!
the satellite map you found under "settings", is a static background image.
TZ is talking about a satellite overlay with realtime images
updated every e.g. 15 min (like the wx radar overlay).
Sat images may be obtained from http://en.sat24.com/en/
We seem to be at crossed lines then - my OP here was not about satellite weather info overlay (such as radar info), but more specifically about satellite "map" overlay - which is exactly what you get using that Settings panel option - just a pity its not more accessible from the main screen. Other Map overlay options would also be advantageous like open cycle map etc
