Hurricane Tracking/Info Website
« on: September 04, 2008, 02:13:36 PM »
Ran into this website over at gHacks.com. If you are interested in hurricane info (or need to be because of where you live) check out Stormpulse at: http://www.stormpulse.com - an excellent site that is continuously updated with the latest storm data.

I have always used Xastir for that kind of stuff.

See my old post about it here:

Since many storm trackers also happen to be radio amateurs ( or is it the other way around?! :) ) you can get lots of hurricane+storm info over the APRS network.


It shows the predicted path of the hurricane/tornado/whatever etc too, almost exactly the way stormpulse.com shows it.

This page shows a replay of the track on hurricane Bertha. It uses JavaAPRS, so the map display kind of sucks, it would look a lot nicer on Xastit, but you get the idea :)
