Weather radar covers just a fraction of the World. But what is happening outside radar range can play sometimes a crucial role for human safety.
That is why we have decided to add worldwide Satellite layer to Windy.
Huge satellite dish, expensive equipment and a half year of development. Our last addition was not simple at all, but we have worked hard.
So far we have a few issues with Satellite layer and we are working hard to fix them.
Nice bonus can be easy to use the animate tool at www.windy.com/animate, that will create a shareable video for your news server or a social account (works only on a desktop computer). Use the video as you wish, just do not forget to add a clickable link to Windy.com.
A lot of people worked on this big feature: I, personally, have bootstrapped CSS classes, Milan, our webGL guru created front end player. But most of the work (approx 80%) was done on the backend. Importing, transformations, delivery. Tomas, Martin, Jakub a Jindra did the job.
Enjoy satellite and stay safe.
