Met Office Invent Feature

Recommended Posts

I have to say this looks like an excellent addition to the Met Office website:

I for one am looking forward to seeing some of the Met Office's future plans showcased!

I never imagined that they would try something like this!

I must say, it looks very promising indeed, and would probably render much of the info on the BBC weather site obselete. It seems pretty likely to me that they've had a good hard look at Google Maps and come up with some ideas on how to present a more "interactive" set of weather info based on them.

Some of it is a bit buggy and slow to update, but they do say that it's in development so that isn't a surprise to me.

It is a bit slow and possibly still a few bugs to iron out I guess but it does have potential. I too look forward to its full release. (Unless that is it?)

I would imagine that it almost already is. I haven't used it for months since the (unneccesary) changeover.

The BBC site is awful. Offers absolutely nothing. The new Met Office feature is brilliant, it is slow though but I am sure that these little problems will be soon ironed out.

I agree completely. I gave up with the BBC a long time ago but really like the look of this
