The future version of the World Weather Information Service (WWIS) Website of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is showcased in the “MeteoWorld” Pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo 2010 that runs from May to October 2010.
This brand-new version of WWIS is Google Earth enabled. It allows users to freely move around a virtual globe by changing the viewing angle and position, and has the additional capability of representing many different views such as geographical and man-made features on the surface of the Earth. It features a versatile "fly-over" function to any part of the world and a quick search function. This revamped version of WWIS will therefore provide users with more intuitive and flexible access to the official weather forecasts for more than 1 300 cities around the world.
