CustomWeather, Inc., which provides high-resolution weather data and alert services, has developed a marine route forecasting system, CW Voyage. The company has offered weather data to the marine industry previously, but CW Voyage lets the user change waypoints and receive updated weather and marine forecasts for a desired route or a possible alternative course. The interface for waypoint entry and data retrieval operates on all the world’s oceans.
A custom weather and marine report is generated for each intended route waypoint, including relevant weather maps and satellite imagery. Animation of weather and marine map layers follow a moving vessel. CW Voyage includes conditions reporting including weather, wind, waves, tide and ocean conditions.
Updated every six hours, the data includes surf and sea state, a marine forecast, local tide charts, detailed forecasts for wave and wind, buoy reports and weather information including maps, satellite and potential tropical storm development.
A demonstration of CW Voyage can be seen here.
