BloomSky Web-App Update
See the heat! Now on the BloomSky web-app.
Another update just in time for your Memorial Day travels.
Updated: May 27th, 2016
Following on the heels of the last web-app update, we are at it again. The latest update for the BloomSky Map features the addition of a color-coded index for temperature readings from BloomSky weather cameras around the world. Seen below, the color-coding allows a quick overview of heat- or cold-waves moving through regions.
The color index (seen below) is commonly used throughout the weather media and uses 32 colors to express a broad range of temperatures from -40ºF to 110+ºF. Get to know this color chart, as you may see it showing up elsewhere in the BloomSky universe in the near future.
Today we are launching an updated version of the BloomSky web-app with newly added ‘share’ functionality. As the BloomSky network and community continues to grow, we are ensuring users can access and share hyperlocal and visual weather from any channel. These minor changes will precede some much bigger changes in the coming months, so be sure to check back for news.
The new share feature built into the BloomSky web-app will allow users to share images and videos directly to social media. Previously, users could only share images from within the mobile app or by sharing a direct link to the detail page on the web app. Of course, these ‘share’ methods are still available from within the mobile app, but sometimes you want to see life on a bigger screen.
If you haven’t visited the BloomSky weather map yet, you’ll find a map with each and every public BloomSky weather camera at your fingertips. Browse locations, find new stations to follow, see real-time weather, and view the most recent time-lapse videos from weather cameras around the world.
