mobileGRIB

is a GRIB2 viewer for Android. It enables sailors and meteorologists to have detailed weather information always available.  Source for the Gridded Binaries is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) which delivers detailed GRIB’s every 6 hours. Forecast times and variables can be chosen from pressure, wind arrows, temperature, cloud cover, humidity and precipitation for the upcoming 6 days between a resolution of 1° x 1° or, for even more detail, 0.5° x 0.5°. By selecting only what the user needs, this procedure will keep the size of the downloaded GRIB file low, making it especially convenient for low bandwidth regions covered only by Edge or GPRS networks, or simply regions with low cellular coverage.

upcoming features

  • L and H signs for pressure
  • Isotherms
  • Waves
  • Windmap
  • Combined numerical data
  • Weather Animation
  • 16 days forecast
  • and much, much more to be added..stay tuned!
