Administration of webcams
Meteopool has more than 1000 webcams. These and new webcams require regular checks about the actuality and correctness of the information, so that one of most informative and precisely webcam maps in the internet can continue to shine with its quality. It's also important to fill gaps in the webcam maps with qualitative webcams. Even only the previous 1250 active webcams show, how much the administration effort and how high the decay rate will be.
The project partly offers Europe wide data and is not only addressing German stormchasers or weather maps observer. To gain international visitors and project participants, the project has to be translated into as much languages as possible.
Update/transmit miscellaneous data
Meteopool offers a high amount of different data, which can be interested for different fields of interest. No matter if information about weather stations, soundings or weather radar locations - all of those data can be displayed clearly as databases or maps, even images are highly requested. To keep the data up to date and to expand them, we are looking for team members, which take over one or more tasks. People, who already gather such data in their private time, can have an useful practice of their interest by participating at Meteopool, since the results are published to a great crowd and which are also available in combination with other data.
The following data are currently listed in the project and we would be happy about additions to our administration/team work and gathering of contents (Click on the cross for more information):
For many years, Meteopool co founder Markus Foster managed a great collection of weather station locations under Albwetter.de. The collection was lost due to technical difficulties. We decided to rebuild it. You photographed a weather station or you have information about the history of a location? Or you simply have exact coordinates? Help us then and send a mail, so we can publish these information!
