CustomWeather, Inc., a specialized provider of high resolution weather forecast and alert services, announced a joint endeavor with EarthBuzz Software to offer an interactive social weather application for iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Powered by weather data from CustomWeather, EarthBuzz allows users to visualize geo-tagging Twitter friends on a 3D globe that includes overlays of live global weather conditions, hurricanes, earthquakes, observations and forecast imagery.
CustomWeather's high resolution, localized forecasting system, combined with EarthBuzz's app-development ingenuity equals an entertaining and compelling "big picture" weather experience for checking weather conditions, forecasts and other global events in connection with friends and loved ones.
EarthBuzz has layered CustomWeather's forecasting data over NASA's recently released Blue Marble high resolution earth-imagery. CustomWeather's data includes live weather conditions, forecasts, animated satellite cloud image layers and global forecast system image layers.
Michael Clark, founder of EarthBuzz software, explains that "We chose CustomWeather as our data provider due to their extensive suite of weather products: current conditions, extended forecasts, a wide range of image layers and tile serving capability, and access to other weather-related events such as earthquakes, hurricanes, observations and alerts - all from a single provider. The XML formats innovated by CustomWeather have made it easy from a developer perspective to access this collections of data with a uniform interface."
EarthBuzz is available both in free and premium versions on iTunes App Store. For more information, visit www.EarthBuzz.com.
