    I am pleased to announce the availability of a new weather application.

    Weather4D, a weather application whose characteristic is its 3D display mode. To find W4D I invite you to visit a blog post by Francis Fustier:

    and also the site of W4D:

    If you have questions or ideas about Weather4D, you can contact me at contact@weather4d.com.

    Some screenshots:

    These zones display data through weather pictograms and gradients representing precipitations and cloudiness.

    This zone enables you to visualize bigger movements of air masses by observing the evolution of the wind and precipitations. You’ll notice the activation of the sun light map.

    As known among seamen the Mediterranean area is famous for its multiple winds. In this zone you can discover the very beginning of a gust of wind over the "Golfe du Lion". The wind is represented by barbules.
