  1. Town Marker

    The old version of the enlarged radar Wundermap had a marker at your desired town. The new version of the map seems to be lacking that town marker.
    Can you please put the town marker back?!

    • Precipitation information on the station graphs seems to be x10 the actual figure

      The new graphs displaying station data look great but the figures displayed for precipitation seem to be x10 the actual data?

        • wundermap

          I've never gotten very far with the wundermap. Guess I've fallen into the generation gap because I haven't used maps with so many layers. If there is a tutorial, please make it very obivious. Thanks.

          • Redesign Wundermap precipitation to look like Weather. Com

            I like the wundermap, but think it would look even better with a smoother and more transparent opaque radar for precip. I like Weather.com's the best

            • Radar animation loops still don't work properly

              Radar animation is still stop and go. No smooth animation. Terrible

              • Presentation Mode available via link parameter

                The current presentation mode is great, but I cannot reach it via a link (e.g. via bookmarks). I would love to have a link (get) parameter that I could use to turn this mode on as default when I navigate to the site.

                • Return to Old Model Maps

                  The most valuable parts of your site are surface and 500mb model maps. This used to be great but is now virtually unusable on WunderMap. Animation doesn't work and it's too clunky to set the parameters. Pleas go back to your old system which was infinitely more user-friendly and informative. I have used this site for years, but will probably have to go to Unisys to get what I need now.

                  • When running for a long period of time, the first frame never gets refreshed

                    Happens on and has been reported on the current Wundermap, but also occurs on this version.

                    When Wundermap runs for a long period of time, the first frame gets stuck, so when the animation runs, you get one frame from when you first started the animation, then the last N frames...

                    • Make it possible to customise units on Wundermap.

                      e.g.Beaufort or knots instead of km/hr. I mean, km/hr? Seriously?

                      • Please put "rain rate" on the WunderMap.

                        Many ask me for "rain rate" and it displays on my Davis weather station but not on Wunderground.

                            You're so fixed on punching up (bad) visuals, you've forgotten what's important - the weather. I used to be able to click on a storm icon and get text information on the type, speed, etc. Now that's gone. I think its time to get back to basics.

                            • This is not an idea, it is a defect report about the animated radar.

                              I fell in love with Weather Underground because of its Wundermap. I showed it to all my friends, and when the Kansas skies would open up the first thing I would do is get KAKE and KSN weather on the TV, and get wundermap going on my laptop. I would configure wundermap to show me no weather stations, the animated radar, the watches/warnings with 30% opacity, and enable stormtracks. Everything else was left as default.

                              This setup would show me all 3 layers for every radar frame as it happened, including the warnings, stormtracks, and radar. It worked flawlessly in…

                              • Get the radar corrected

                                There have been many changes on the radar wundermap. Currently, for me, it works just fine as long as I take the default settings of one hour. To be honest, it's great to see that working, it's a first seeing something useful on the wundermap radar (I am NOT trying to be mean, just show my frustration, okay?). As soon as I change the defaults, the radar goes wacky .... it's not fluid. It's missing or skipping many frames of the radar. For instance, I just tried to get radar for the last 4 hours time period and it showed…

                                    • satellite animation sensitivity option

                                      The classic Wundermap permitted the sensitivity slider to be set to zero when looping visible satellite imagery. This was useful, because thin clouds (or clouds at dawn and dusk) can be seen in the loop using low sensitivity but not at higher sensitivities. I noticed that this option was removed from the new Wundermap, which is a major reason I still use the classic Wundermap - though I understand it will not be available after Nov. 18. Please consider bringing back this option for weather enthusiasts like myself.

                                        I was looking through this and talking to our mets, and it seems that the way we are doing historical animation on the new WunderMap leads to this problem with the low sensitivity Satellite animation.
                                        We are planning to undertake projects to fix Satellite and Radar on the WunderMap, and will definitely take your feedback into account.

                                        Would you be interested in participating in a feedback session about WunderMap?

                                        You've got a temperature grid overlay, I assume that's contoured from weather stations, why not a rainfall overlay?

                                        • Button at top of wundermap to go back to weather detail page

                                          Just a button at the top to go back to the weather detail page for the selected city without having to go to the home page and re select it.
