shows the movement of the wind
in the different altitudes
for the chosen place
. The coordinate
axes of the map show the coordinates of the selected place and
The altitude is given in meters above ground or pressure level
. The colors
indicate the wind speeds, and are shown in the legend. The wind
speeds are given in km/h.
legend has detail steps from 0-90 km/h. Above 90 km/h, no more details are shown, because these speeds occur rarely, and when they occur, they occur often over an entire area (and not unevenly distributed). Also, their temporal and altitude distribution is more important than their spatial distribution. For speeds above 90 km/h, the AIR meteogram
will provide more useful details about wind speed
. The large scale distribution is shown in the maps
The windSPOT diagram always centers exactly on the selected location
, for any place on Earth: you will always see the conditions in the are surrounding the location
which you selected.
The windSPOT represents a map section of 1x1 degrees
, and thus includes about 100 kilometers in latitude and longitude. To provide world-wide availability, it uses a simplified set of maps, on which only the country's borders, main water bodies and rivers are displayed. For orientation, the coordinate
lines are shown on the edge of the graph.
To get a better orientation, you can click the "Show on map" button in the black bar above the windSPOT. Then you will see an overview map of the area that displays places
, administrative boundaries, rivers and (after respective selection) also the terrain elevation. If necessary, you can use this map for reference in the area.
If you want to view a larger area, you simply create two adjacent windSPOT diagrams.
can be created anywhere on the world:
- in cities and in the countryside;
- on land and sea;
- in valleys and on mountains;
