WeatherCat is designed to work with hardware-based weather stations (Davis Vantage, Vue, Monitors/Wizards, LaCrosse WS23xx and Oregon Scientific WMR 928/968).
As data is gathered and stored in its database, WeatherCat allows you to view weather statistics such as the lowest temperature, or the highest wind speed over any time period stored in the database. In addition, WeatherCat can generate and upload simple web pages which offer quick 'canned' solution to get your weather data on-line as quickly as possible, as well as template driven 'custom' web pages that can contain current conditions, graphs, gauges, statistics, webcam images and time-lapse movies; these web pages can be uploaded to your server by WeatherCat for display via a web browser anywhere in the world.
WeatherCat can also send your weather data to the Weather Underground, the Citizens Weather Observer Program and provides close to real time Custom C.G.I. upload to a web-server for your own web-based applications.
WeatherCat monitors the weather and can run a set of pre-defined and user programmed alerts that can trigger emails and/or run scripts should an alert trigger; for example to switch on your sprinklers, heating or cooling. In addition WeatherCat can integrate with other systems via its AppleScript interface.
