Atmosphere Weather is all about presentation of the weather forecast! Finding a source for the forecast has never been a problem, but being able to quickly and easily comprehend the forecast is tedious with too many weather apps. We either get an oversimplification with one icon for a whole day, something that looks like a trig test, or just a ton of ads. Atmosphere Weather excels at quickly at efficiently communicating the vast amount of information that comprises the weather forecast.
Atmosphere Weather is based on wx24Pilot.com , my aviation weather app. The aviation weather apps purpose is to distill important information down from dozens of complex weather reports into a clear presentation for a quick go/no-go decision. Atmosphere Weather leverages this same unique interface to display weather information in a quick and intuitive interface.
When you talk forecast you’re talking time. In fact the forecast makes no sense apart from time, so why not render it on a clock? Most care when the sky will be blue again, why not render the color of the sky in the forecast instead of using 3 or 4 icons to represent the vast variety of cloud conditions. Most check the forecast for upcoming plans so why not overlay calendar events on top of the forecast?
Showing the radar in the middle allows the viewer to make better decisions. Here we see the radar validating the forecast, we can be sure the forecast is right this time. The radar can validate or dismiss the forecast, giving the Atmosphere Weather viewer all the information needed to make informed decisions on the weather forecast.
Atmosphere Weather is based on my aviation weather app – Wx24Pilot. I developed this app to reduce the time and effort it took to do preflight planning. It essentially takes a 15 minute process down to a few seconds just by presenting, the same information everyone else uses, in a better way.
The concept of Wx24Pilot was to present the primary aviation weather reports on one screen in a visual format for an easy read. Most aviation weather reports are alphanumeric text. With my new presentation I discovered I was able to read and retain the weather for a 1,000 mile trip very quickly.
Having a keen sense of observation I realized there are more non pilots than pilots in the world; so I developed Atmosphere Weather for the general public. Atmosphere Weather uses the same presentation system found in Wx24Pilot cuz it rocks.
That’s me -Paxton Calvanese – the devilishly handsome one in the photo. I’ve produced 3 apps; Wx24Pilot, Drive Weather, and Atmosphere Weather. I might do CycleWeather, then of course there is WaterWeather and not to be out done by WalkWeather.
In raising my kids and trying to guide them in school and career I put together projectModus.com as I knew my kids wouldn’t listen to me but perhaps they’d listen to others say the same thing. On the side I take a few snaps shown at https://500px.com/paxtoncalvanese and on Instagram.
Born in Chicago, grew up in England, with an Italian sir name; so my work is American cuz it has to get done, English because it has to be done right, and Italian for style.
