CAMS signs partnership with weather application Windy
08 March 2019
The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) has recently signed a new partnership with leading weather forecast visualisation service, Windy. The partnership will deliver worldwide air quality information through Windy's highly popular web and smartphone application.
Windy is a leading Czech start-up that enables approximately 800 000 people per day to see information about different weather parameters laid over a world map. The information is shown using moving particles that represent speed and direction, and colours that represent strength or density. A variety of weather elements are incorporated into the application, including wind, rain, lightning and different cloud types. Windy provides forecasts of these elements up to six days in advance.
