Weather and Storm Tracking Tools for Google Earth

Weather tools in Google EarthLast summer Google Earth Blog collected a few of the better tools for tracking storms in Google Earth. Now GEB will maintain a network link with some of the best weather tracking tools available. If you save the weather and tracking tools network link in your My Places you will automatically get the latest collection when you turn it on. The current collection contains a global hurricane tracking tool, global cloud maps, severe weather warning data and radar data from NOAA for the US, weather observations for the US from WeatherBonk, a real-time day/night viewing tool, and the global annual lightning flash rate map from NASA. The collection will grow and improve over time. Here is a list of the current contents with links to stories about the tools here at the GEB:

    Thanks for collecting these. I'd also like to recommend the following near real-time ocean observing platform placemarks and overlays being provided as a network link documented here earlier http://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/2006/04/near_realtime_o.html

    Thanks for the links. That Big red patch covering the arctic region that reads 'Loading' is cool! :D

    Image overlays flashing on and off in GE4.

    Some overlays which cover most of the earth eg satellite pictures just stay off, occasionally flashing on for a second. Smaller images flash on and off at random. Sometime mouse movements seem to trigger the flashing.

    Others are seeing the same:

    Very nice add-on to GE, I like the real time radar and clouds. VERY cool.
