|myMapServer allows you to generate detail forecasts for any place on earth. |
Region and Image type
To start, select a region (Europe, Africa, South America, World, etc.) from the top (light blue) menu bar. Then select the type of image (Map, Meteogram, Sounding, Astronomy Seeing, Cross Section, Trajectory) you want to create from the middle (light blue) menu bar below the time box.
You can make maps for any place on Earth with different parameters and timing.
Start by selecting the area: enter the coordinates of the place into the coordinate boxes for North, South, East and West boundary of the desired map, or by drawing the extent of the area on the map.
Select the time for which you want the map from the TIME box above. All times are given in UTC.
Select the parameter(s) which you want to see on the map from VARIABLE 1 (and 2) box below the map. You can combine 2 variables. We recommend to start with 1.
Format the map using colortable, contour annotation, vector/steam density (1 = high, 5 = low), colour scaling (optimized or fixed), image size, and nackground features (surface image, city names, rivers/lakes, roads). We recommend to start with default settings, and then experiment with others.
You can make meteograms for any place on Earth by entering the coordinates of the place. If you don't know the coordinates, go to www.meteoblue.com, select your country and enter your placename. The coordinates of the selected places will be shown and you can transfer them into the coordinate box on myMapServer. Put the latitude in both the North and South box, and the longitude in the East and West box. For Europe, you can select the location from a menu of locations, by selecting the country and entering the placename.
After having the coordinates entered in the coordinate box, view the meteogram by clicking on "make Map". Return to the main screen with "back".
Local services: Soundings, Astronomy Seeing, Cross Section, Trajectory can also be produced by selecting one location, and using the same favorite location.
SAVE your work:
You need to enter coordinates and settings only once, if you need to view a map or meteogram again. After generating the image, go "back" to the main screen, enter a name in the box "Save current settings: map name" and save it with "Save map". The next time, you can select it directly from "my Maps".
More instructions can be found under the myMapServer HELP button.
This is the only such service available for the world. We hope this makes it useful for you, and appreciate your comments and suggestions!
