The Severe Weather Module provides users with an array of layers that one would want when tracking severe weather (beyond radar and satellite). It also enhances some of the layers to provide more detail compared to the default SDK implementations. The Storm Tracks layer takes the
data to plot a vector of its movement. It also provides the user deeper insight on the storm cell info in a custom infopanel upon selecting. Upon selection of a storm cell or its vector, a custom infopanel will display. This infopanel will provide the user with deeper insight into the storm cell properties and affected cities.
Additional custom layers include
. When selected, these layers will plot polygons outlining the areas where storm or lightning threats exist. The
layer option provides a custom call to the AerisWeather API to request severe related warnings, like severe thunderstorm, tornado, and flash flood warnings.
Using the precompiled version of the module is the easiest method for integrating it into your maps. Just load our precompiled script into your HTML and add it to your maps:
