Perth Animated Weather SkyCam

Postby von-Kármán » Sun Aug 07, 2011 2:20 pm

Animated Perth weather web cam
This is still very much a work in progress, and the camera is pretty crappy but is suitable for proof of concept.

You can animate as many images as you like but it will take a while to load. The rest should be fairly self explanatory.
The image below is live (so will update every time you open this thread)

And click below for the animated version (showing last hour of images):

Hopefully it will prove interesting for some!

(and yes, I'm playing with the setup at the moment, so a few images may drop out or look odd, sorry!)

Hey great, Von-Karman. Just need another big front to go through. :)

Will you change the direction in summer as most summer storms come from the north? :)

Hi Big Pete.

I will move it as required, and I'm hoping to get a better quality and wider angle webcam. I also need to make the whole interface more userfriendly , but the proof of concept looks good. Animating the last 3 hrs (for example) you see the showers coming in and sweeping over the area.

I see you've been having rain in Perth, haven't had anything yet. Will be watching the web cam in summer when Perth is sunny and hot and down here its drizzly and cool.

Hmmm seems the connection died at 12:39pm ... I suspect I know why and it involves my wife and technology failure ... hmmmm ... will fix when I get home.
