Website Development for High Precision Meteorology

January 14, 2019 | Success Story

Weather forecasts at a glance

Morecast, the premium weather app of the international weather service UBIMET, a subsidiary of the Red Bull group, is a leading global provider of meteorological forecasting systems. IXOLIT was entrusted to prepare the large number of weather data from the existing app in a responsive website to make it available to the international users in five languages. By integrating satellite images and web cams, visitors can enjoy special features. As Morecast offers complex meteorological data in form of real-time satellite images and web-cams, they had to be prepared and displayed in an ideal way.

The company provided IXOLIT with an API of their comprehensive weather data. The layout was implemented in just a few weeks by our experienced development team. The versatile features were available to the users in a clear and modern design and the website is characterized by a user-friendly handling on all devices.

IXOLIT convinced within this project with ownership and identification – all parties involved obviously had fun with the implementation and brought in their own creative ideas to develop an even better product. Critical feedback - from people who understand their craft and identify with the project – is unimaginably valuable – and a real USP. The result can be definitely seen.

With the "Radar" feature the development of storm-fronts can be observed in real time. Users also have the opportunity to become part of the Morcast community and share their personal "weather moment" via Facebook or Twitter which will posted on the website too. The "3D globe" provides a fascinating overview of the changing weather fronts on our planet via satellite images.
