Weather Stations


This is a web application created for my 'Data, Schemas & Applications' module, the application grabs data from various XML feeds using PHP and AJAX. The weather feeds selected are determined by the Config XML which can also be selected by the user. For example: Additional features include the ability to retrieve relevant images and news items about the weather stations from Flickr and BBC live feeds via Yahoo Pipes. The application also generates a KML feed which can be read by Google Maps and used to plot the location of the active weather stations. The website includes use of phatfusion : multibox.

An inspiration to both his teachers and classmates, Steve gets the web, and the concepts of building applications that make best use of the networked, data-driven aspects of the internet, an asset to any company that he works for.
