WXC is a mobile android application (desktop version for the big screen: http://wxcpro.eu/) that interprets the weather forecast in a way suitable for sports flying.
The forecast is refreshed automatically every 6 hours and information is stored on the device.
The forecast is 8 days (ICON 6 days) forward and 2 days back for analysis and comparison.
The app makes it easy to save and share forecasts for future use.
Visit http://www.ori-go.net/wxc-how-it-was to find the prediction history of the selected locations.
The application contains information about the altitude profile of the atmosphere with emphasis on elements in the atmosphere that are important for free flying such as
force and direction of horizontal flow, gusts of wind, humidity, temperature. The zero isotherm and the condensation level layer are indicated.
The color range is adapted to the purpose of the application. In particular, it is a fine wind scale between 0 - 8 meters per second.
It also contains information about pressure and vertical flow caused by atmospheric instability, information about the cloud and its real height on all three levels.
Furthermore, information about the Cape Index and rainfall, nformation about the sun's position and angle above the horizon and duration of sunshine. All in the form of an original simple and clear graphic design.
The information is also presented in the form of an aerological chart, which is intended especially for the professional public and for their easy orientation by the form they may be used to.
The high profile allows easy and intuitive and smooth scaling from approx. 2km to 12km.
When creating terrain with predictions, you can set your own notifications to alert you of the weather you entered in the given area.
This makes it easier and faster for you to decide on your favorite terrain. At the same time you will not miss any flight day.
The app contains offline all larger airports and cities (20,000 inhabitants) in the world, all known and unknown launch and landing areas.
The user interface allows you to set the units you use. For example, km / hour or meters or wicks.
For easier orientation on the wind direction and strength you can switch to a presentation by using flags.
