Recent chart update

You may have noticed a change in the appearance of your myWindsock charts. I hope you like the change. The new chart system is far more flexible than the previous version allowing for new and exciting functionality that I will give detail on soon.

With any major change like this I am expecting there to be gremlins to iron out. If you spot something please let me know.

Some features of the new charts you can enjoy right now:

  • Zooming: Drag or use the Zoom buttons to get closer detail to sections of a forecast.
  • Smoothing & Sampling: For speed and clarity you can now change the smoothing of charts
  • New chart ‘Ground Speed Distribution
  • Wind Lines now illuminate the elevation chart for improved context
  • Route reversal, any route can now be reversed
  • New metrics including Total Rainfall

The new chart system allows greater interactivity and with this the possibility for improved forecasting. Stay tuned for the next big update.
