Topic: Doppler Weather Overlay
Hi, we would like to have a map overlay feature, similar to Traffic, added for weather, e.g. doppler weather radar
This would be something similar to: http://weather-ng.com/
We have spoken with several municipalities and organizations that use this technology daily. They would much rather have it integrated into their fleet management solution, so they can see the units on the map real-time, along with the current, and possibly transitioning weather. This helps them to quickly and easily guide or position drivers based on inclement weather.
We have tried with geofences and iframes within these geofences, but this only helps to an extent, and the sources we have found have problems with caching incorrect location details.
In general, the organizations we have seen requesting this are fairly large, from 100 to several thousand, from private organizations to municipalities. Generally it is the larger organizations that are in need of this, so they can see many vehicles on the map, along with the weather/weather changes. This has caused us to lose fairly large opportunities because of this.
