We are now testing
the system with multiple simultaneous observers.

A preview of the new
system can be seen at
NOTE: This link is to a work in progress and may not always be available or
fully functional, there are known issues with the temperature and dewpoint
markers on internet explorer.
This system will be
available to all chasers and spotters, letting you upload position, images,
weather station data, or even manually entered observations to our server. The
idea is to get simultaneous real-time views and data from around a storm event,
and to archive the data for future weather research after an event.
Put webcam capture and upload functions
into CPS.exe for ease of use and so that picture and position files are made
Set up mySQL database to enable archive for both webcam and position.
Provide system for
multiple chasers to be tracked simultaneously on map with tracks clickable
to show webcam
at that position.
write provision for CPS to store position
and webcam files until internet connection is made, then uploading all
starting with latest first
Set up server to show weather station
plots on the Google map at the position the readings were taken.
Set up observer
database to display names and equipment information on the map screen.
Make provision to capture and upload
mobile mesonet station data to send realtime temperature, dewpoint,
windspeed and direction.
Here's the planned look for multiple
observers around some weather event.
New: Added grlevel3 placefile for location
and info for any users online, just add
