WeatherMap Live

 What is WeatherMap Live?
WeatherMap Live is a Flash movie which uses data available from "Metars" (from airports and from amateur stations providing data in "METAR" format) as well as from Weather Display weather stations.
The data from Weather Display weather stations is usually updated every 15 minutes whereas the data from "METARs" (airports and amateur stations) is usually updated every 30 or 60 minutes (depending on their upload frequency).

 How WeatherMap Live works.
The WeatherMap Live «» server downloads METAR and Weather Display data on a regular basis, processes the data to extract the required information and then stores it in a database.
You then embed the WeatherMap Live file into a page on your Web site, create a map (or maps) for it and then subscribe to a data feed for those map(s). When a visitor goes to your WeatherMap Live Web page, the visitors browser contacts the «» server and asks for the latest data for the map, which is then plotted onto the map by the Flash movie.

So once you have set up your Web page, created your map, configured WeatherMap Live and subscribed to a data feed, you can just sit back because there's nothing more for you to do. Your PC does not need to download huge volumes of data each month to create your own WeatherMap Live or create and upload WeatherMap Live every 15 minutes 24*365.
Apart from downloading the Web page and map from your site, all the traffic is between the visitors' PC and the «» server. If you have an upload or download cap on your Web server, then your bandwidth usage will be almost unaffected by requests for data.
