Weather Message Map

The above screen shows a view of active weather alarms in the state of Alabama.  This image was taken during a severe weather outbreak in November 2001.  Weather Message Map uses GIS technology which allows you to position the map to anywhere in the United States.  The map data is provided by the National Weather Service.

Weather Message PDA

WxPda is a Message Client designed for the PDA.  It runs on Microsoft Pocket PC or Windows Mobile.

Weather Message Server

The Weather Message Client and Map are powered by the Weather Message Server.  This server receives and decodes the weather messages.  The received messages are compared to the types of messages that you want to receive.  When a message matches, it is sent to the Message and Map clients.  In addition, the server can email or page a group of people using short text messages.  Weather Message includes software that will page individuals or groups using the TAP, SNPP, or WCTP protocol.  It also features an interface to PageGate.
