  1. Classic WunderMap Ending? OH NO!!!

    I'll add my voice to the many who feel that WU has lost its way, at least as far as user interface is concerned. I stuck with the Classic UI, because the new UI is intolerably ugly and impossible to navigate efficiently. But if the Classic WunderMap is going bye-bye, I guess I'll end my long membership (nine years so far) and use a different weather site.
    Constructive suggestion: if you can't keep the Classic WunderMap, hire Edward Tufte as a consultant to help you fix your truly awful new WunderMap.

      We understand that transitioning from classic to the new UI will take some adjusting.
      We are currently in the process of gathering feedback from users, and plan to address some of the bugs and UI issues on the current WunderMap in the coming months. Part of the effort would also include addressing the visual aesthetics of WunderMap.

      Feel free to post any specific feedback or comments here, or write to me at pranay.sethi@weather.com

        Hi Kermet,
        The Jet Streams map is available in the Model Data layer. Turn the layer on, and select the ECMWF model from the layer settings. You can look at the Jet Stream map by selecting the 300mb or 200mb Map Type.
        Then turn on U.S. Fronts layer to see the fronts together with jet streams.
        Let me know if that helps.

      • Hide Sidebar as default

        I want to hide the sidebar, I saved it using SAVED PREFS button. But still it keeps showing. How can I hide it as my default?

        I have a photo her that I want to hide as my default.

          Hi Albin,
          You can hide the sidebar using the Presentation Mode option, or by clicking on the collapse button next to the layers/trips/legends tab. Unfortunately, the Save Prefs feature does not ‘save’ either of these settings. We will look into the possibility of adding the support for this into Save Prefs.

          Thanks for writing in.

        • what is "save Prefs do?".

            Clicking on Save Prefs will save the current view of your WunderMap for the next time you visit it. It saves your zoom level and map position, the layers you have turned on, layer settings and the map type that you have selected and reloads it automatically when you visit WunderMap again.

            This feature requires cookies and javascript to be enabled in your browser.
            Let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for writing in!

          • Ads On Wundermap Page

            You guys need to do something about the ads suddenly appearing on the top left side of the Wundermap which takes away that part of the view of the map.

            Every time such an ad appears there is no way to close it and I have to refresh the damn page. I do not like it one damn bit. This is so annoying.

            Please do something about it. Thank you.

            • Loop speed?

              I would like to see a 2 1/2x or a 3x on the wundermap storm loop.
              1x is too slow and 5x is too fast. Something in between would be better.

              Personally I would prefer a 2 1/2x loop. 2 1/2x to me is a perfect balance.

              • WunderMap Disappointment

                I don't have an idea, I just wanted to express my extreme disappointment in Wundermap. I live in a hurricane prone area and this used to be my go to tool for weather tracking. However, something has changed in the last year and Wundermap is virtually unusable now. The animation is jumpy and that is only during the rare occasion when it works at all. Even with the animation turned off, I can't leave the Wundermap page open for too long or my entire computer slows to a crawl. Everyone I work with has had similar complaints and we are…

                • Note Storm Surge layer as Eastern Pacific/Atlantic basins only

                  The storm surge layer is a NOAA product and it does not indicate this. I had a friend today try to use it to get storm surge info on Super Typhoon Haiyan

                    • Bringing this to your attention

                      I'm really upset about the classic not being used anymore. It works great with my Kindle.
                      This version of the wundermap is very hard to use on my Kindle. When I try to push the button to go, the GOOGLE button is too close and I can't access the go button, it always engages the google button. I rely on my kindle when I'm traveling to give me the latest on WUG wundermap. This version is too much work!

                        • Too many new bells and whistles added to a product that was "wunderfully" functional as it was. Bring back simple current weather tracking!

                          Too many new "bells and whistles" added to a product that was "wunderfully" functional as it was. I gave it my best shot, watched your video more than once, but still find it currently very "user unfriendly". Many people use WunderMap for tracking current weather systems locally or regionally, and it rarely works now....the timeline feature also is somewhat (very) confusing and difficult to use. It seems that you have taken a good and functional approach and have simply taken it too far. "Bells and Whistles" can be both useful and fun, but there is elegance in simplicity, and it…

                          • Wundermaps are WONDERFUL!!

                            Cannot find live surge on new format. I have save settings for hurricane track and storm surge. I adjust the opacity, but my preferences never hold on that. Also I saved setting for US Rivers 'flood stage only" but it reverts to wet/dry % and clutters the map.
                            The dropdown fir sailing and boating can replace the land map or satellite with NOAA nautical chart. Can this feature be on all wundermaps? With the wind and wave plots that are below the marine weather forecast? That would be awesome.

                              • The "New WunderMap" has forced me to look at other online weather options...

                                I have NO IDEA why it was necessary to "improve" the WunderMap. The old version was MUCH more user friendly and displayed more information than I even needed. Print these words... "Leave Well Enough Alone." on an index card and tape it to your monitor to remind you NOT to make any more unnecessary "improvements."

                                • Is there any way to disable the Wundermap Overview using a query string? Digital signage doesn't have mouse access.

                                  I am using an XMP-3350 by iAdea that pulls various feeds for display on a digital signboard. There doesn't seem to be a way to call "wundermap.overview.hide" using a query string. Or is there?

                                      • New version looks nice

                                        This evening I looked at the newest version and really like it. It loads and displays quicker, on my Mac at least. Now I have to see what it does on my Android phone.
