This is an example of how you could visualize an evolving weather story using Metacast® Borealis. This involves track data, model data, animating camera and symbols. Using these elements we can look at the past track, the current situation and look in detail on the forecast situation with both tracks and model data.
We have made an addition to our on-line presence with weatherone.tv/wiki. Our intention is to develop the wiki to become an updated resource for manuals and how-to guides for the Metacast software and related services.
If you are an existing customer you can get an access by emailing our support and we will get back to you shortly with the login information.
The model data of Tropical Storm Isaac creates an opportunity for great weather visualizations. Even though there are more accurate models available, the half degree gfs model lines up quite well with the official storm tracks posted at the National Hurricane Center (NHC).
I have made a Tropical Storm Isaac playlist that I’ll try to keep updated the next few days for you to check the progression of the model forecasts.
