VentuSKY – visualising wind

ventusky

VentuSKY is a new web based tool to visualise wind data across the Earth. VentuSKY has been developed in the Czech Republic by InMeteo. It provides an effective way of visualising wind data so balloonists planning a launch can quickly identify if a launch site will have strong winds and some altitudes where balloon flight may be turbulent. While it is not a substitute for conventional meteorological forecasts, it  helps balloonists get a now cast on flight conditions.
