This feature-rich program offers a wealth of tools for tracking hurricanes. Since Tracking the Eye consumes a rather large amount of RAM, make sure your PC is up to the task before you install it. The tabbed interface boasts many icons and menu items and may initially appear intimidating. However, spend a little time, and you'll eventually learn your way around.

The main tracking section displays a nicely designed map that allows easy views of both the Atlantic and Pacific hurriance regions. If there's a storm brewing, you'll see its path on the map, and you also can open a database that contains information on past hurricanes, tropical storms, and depressions. A tremendous amount of information about current and past storms includes wind speeds, longitude and latitude, storm direction, barometric pressure, and tons of other stats for weather junkies.

Tabs let you access real-time satellite images, read public advisories, and information on public advisories. You'll also find tools for customizing the appearance of the maps, as well as graphs and stats regarding certain storms. Anyone with an interest in hurricanes is likely to find Tracking the Eye well worth the download.
