@ivo Hi Ivo, first of all, I'd like to thank you very much for your great engagement with this project.
I'd like to ask few question about windy app. I've my own atmospheric model, which is running on ca. 1 km resolution (for certain area) for forecasting some atmospheric variables. I'm wondering, is there a possibility to use your app with my own forecast data on my server? and is there also a possiblity to download your app offline to play first a bit aroud?
Thank you very much for your reply in advance.
Wind wave = wave generated by wind
Swell = wave that has moved outside its area of generation
At any given state, there may be multiple series of waves at your location. The wind could be blowing very hard at your location, creating wind waves. A strong cold front could be moving across the ocean, generating waves that will later arrive at your location and in the opposite direction of the wind waves. A third, or fourth swell could also be present.
in my opinion, the future of weather modelling is MPAS (Model for Prediction Across Scales) which uses a flexible grid configuration that gradually refines to a high spatial grid resolution in the area of interest (see image for USA) or in an area with complex terain (see the Andes mountains, South America). In such a flexible mesh we save computational effort compared to a global model using the same high spatial grid resolution.
I was just wondering if you've managed to make any progress on this project? I recently created https://www.extremesportsearch.com/ which is a crowd-sourced project for extreme sport locations around the world. I can sympathise how hard it is to get users to collaborate, and I think that your creative commons approach is probably favoured by most.
My understanding is that you want a small web application and database residing on your servers, with all of the code open-source and hosted on GitHub. I'm very happy to collaborate with you on this and can easily create an application for you. I'm based in the UK and available to talk next week if you're interested.
All the best,
