Altitudes/Heights in Feet

I'd love to be able to see cloud bases in feet, rather than in meters. Except for niches like gliders, aviation uses feet (Metars, TAFs, sigmets, etc., and our altimeters are almost all scaled in feet).

I concur. Windy is a good source for winds, it would be nice if in settings the terrain and cloud base could be in feet.

How do get to that screen to change the height measurement to feet ?
Is that on iPad? I’m using iPhone and don’t have this option
@tomber42 You mean a TOPOGRAPHY overlay? That would be sweet. US Forest Service (Corp of Engineer Surveys) makes these available as a map feed. I'm pretty sure there is a Google Earth plugin that Windy could use. Similarly, I'd love to have an aircraft navigation and ZONE overlay. There has to be a free government resource somewhere under the freedom of information act (USA). FAA?
@s2wiley The US National Weather Service has these feeds already. (Might actually be from the US Forest Service data.) Dunno about AIRNAV and Zones, however I have to believe these feeds also exist for Civil Aviation. I've found all sorts of available data via https://forecast.weather.gov/product_types.php?site=NWS
River flows, flood levels, topo, various layers of weather feeds, cloudbase etc.
Your link is not « data », it’s only text for watching, warning, alert or information.
No possibility to make a layer on Windy from that.
For embedding a widget on a webpage, how do you set the units to be feet? (for cloudbase etc)
The embed widet maker doesn't give the option for altitude.
