combines our Mapbox Satellite with vector data from Mapbox Streets.
The data is displayed in a web browser or on your PC desktop.
The data is updated every 15 minutes from Weather Display stations and on a less frequent basis from Metars which vary depending upon the airport.
Here is an example for Florida waters to compare with the above FL ASCAT data. Unified analysis map of Florida waters Since ASCAT has two satellites (Metop A and Metop B), which follow the same orbits 47 minutes apart, there is another trick that can be done by georeferencing both in GE, side by side, you get effectively a much wider swath of data.
We miss squall activity that might have occurred between passes, but for ocean analysis it is a nice trick. We have an extensive discussion of ASCAT data and its use in our new textbook Modern Marine Weather, 3rd ed.
You can choose a location to display by entering longitude and latitude co-ordinates into our website front end which then provides you with a list of available weather sources to select for your map.
Add Weather Map Live to your website, configure it with a map of your choice, and sit back to watch the weather! You will need to use this if you use the WU Almanac or WU data.25th February 2019 : Added support for Windguru.

This is not new info, but this new video may raise some interest in the process. The video shows that the descending pass kmz file can be made from the ascending file, by just changing the kmz file name and one letter in the link.
