It was great the way it was.
Why fix something that wasn't broke?
I am a paying subscriber and have been for many years. Stop screwing around with a version that works.
this latest snafoo stinks. When are you people going to wake up and realize the old one was perfect.
new radar is useless
The previous iteration of WunderMaps made it simple to understand, analyze, and adjust predictions based on prior data. The current interation makes me never want to use this website ever again--which pains me because I subscribed due to the previous impeccable quality of information.
Provide us, the actual users - an ability to get useable data, not some fancy gewgawed up thing that is useless and definitely nonintuitive.
Sorry guys, but the new WunderMap is an abject failure.
And yes, I did watch and try to use suggestions from the video.
This new WunderMap is bad, bad, bad.
Sorry. But I guess I will no longer be using your service.
The new map is terrible!
I just want the legacy Wundermaps back. It was elegant, it worked and provided everything I wanted-and paid for-in a real-time weather site. For the life of me, I can’t understand how you folks think that the "new and improved” offering is superior. It isn’t.
Please, give us back what so many are requesting, the classic. Wundermap. Then go away and tinker and improve somewhere else.
I like everything about the current wunderMap. Please do not mess with it
You have really put a screw to your once great map. Takes way to long to load and the "clarity" of information is just not there. You trying to drive us to the "other guy" who's maps, at this time, are better? Bring back the previous version, this one sucks.
The question all of paying member of Weather Underground are asking is that why did you change the wundermap that everyone used and enjoyed? If you would just put back the controls to manage the timeline of the radar images we would be ok. But no you ask for our feedback and we get silence in return. I bet these changes are being dictated by The Weather Channel.
I just want to see what is happening NOW. This is not what I paid for.
I have been a subscriber for many years, but this new Wundermap may send me looking for a new service provider. The original version was so great. What's up with this?
I really hate the new WunderMap. Please go back to the original. It was amazing, easy to navigate....perfect.
I'm now reduced to using the app on my phone, which hasn't changed. I have raved about this site since I first discovered it years ago. The Wundermap was icing on the cake, but someone left the cake out in the rain or something. It's now virtually useless -not even a beta - more like a worse. Seriously, virtually all the clever and useful aspects of thisservice have gone. The timeline is ridiculous; there's no navigation back to the forecast page ; the timeline adjustment jiggles around and there's no simple look back a half hour or so to predict the weather pattern.
PLEASE GO BACK TO THE OLDER VERSION OF WUNDERMAP ANIMATION.
I hate the new map. It's virtually useless. Please add the capability to use the legacy WunderMap, which was brilliant. This new version completely removes everything that was great about the old version.
This new version is awful.
Although the new system is good,but I like and trusted that system.
New program is to confusing to use
The new one shows every weather station when zoomed out and half the time the radar does not work.
You folks need to remember the KISS Principal. The New map is NOT user friendly and all the gimmick and sponsor listings just detracts from using the Maps. The Old map was perfect! Change just to change is not necessary and a lot of us users out here are upset with this new Map and are using other Maps now.
Go back to the old version. This WAS NOT an improvement. Make a short time loop the default and bury the timebar in a submenu for those who want to play. Give me back control of the frame speed. Continue to let me see storm tracks during animation. In all honesty, i doubt that you will ever tweak this downgrade back to a version as good as the old one.
this new one sucks. its a PITA
The new and "improved" version is horrible: there are shockingly huge gaps in the data, the legends for warnings and watches are gone altogether. You people clearly never bothered to test this before rolling it out since, had you tested it, you would have noticed that it does not work at all.
Give us back the old page or hold a class on the new!
Bring back the old interactive wundermap, it just worked.
Its terrible, it wasnt broke, why screw with it.
I DON'T NEED ALL THE BELLS AND WHISTLES. JUST THE FACTS.
This new version is to compacated for the average user. Can't find the place to sign in.
This one sucks!
What used to be, the best weather tracking system on the web; is now a useless load of graphical garbage. I have requested all of my users to remove this junk from their PC's immediately. We are now activly looking for another site to use for the tracking of our daily weather.
It's OK to use the public for Beta Testing; but never at the expense of removing the working versions. Poor Planning on your part.
have lost over 50% of screen..
why change to something less?
I like the older version map. It loads faster. There's really no need to anything other than present conditions
go back to the way it was. new map sucks. HUGE add on the right hand side interferes with the legend. The radar tracking isn't smooth any more. You can see the pixels and it's so much harder to see your area. It figures that weather.com would screw up a really elegant web site.
You took a great product and made it barely marginal. Send your coders out to the real world and try to use this product.
Return to the Old version
my ten vote say go back to old one it was great
The one reason I purchased a membership was the fact this had the best features, the best maps (which stayed up to date constantly), and I could customize all features to meet my needs/ interests. Now I can't watch a storm track with out having to mess with the animation feature on the tool bar. I don't get data at the speed which I used to. And these are just 2 things that annoy me. I loved the fact that this site was like no other site. Now I can't stand it. I look at the Weather Channel more than I ever have. I don't like that but I know I will get info I need - even if it is crappy.
The best improvement, in my opinion, it to take this map back to the way it was. This site really stood out from all the others. Now it's just another place to attempt to figure out.
Go to TWC weather .com their time line is great, but they dont have the bells and whistle you guy do.Their our a lot of ham operators that use you weather and our flustrated,because of the changes. bottom dates needs onl to be todays date all people are worry about is todays weather, get this fixed and you might get more of us back using your weather map, we had a storm her yesterday, Ihad to use TWC Weather map it work ok. we do weather nets every day and turn the into memphis nws 8:00pm every nite and i need a good map ,with my weather station,write now yours is not go back to old one or fix the promblem that i mention, you will lose alot of subcribers, talking to outhers. thanks
it sucks, radar never loads, never shows where the rain is on the whole map, put back the old map & stop trying to make it better, it doesn't get any better than what you had
The old Wundermap was the best radar tool on the internet. That is the reason I paid for a membership. The new version is too busy, complex and nearly impossible to use. Please allow users to select the classic version instead of the new one.
Come on guys... The new map is crap... I want the old one back... It worked great and was a lot simplier...
Go back to the original.
Thank goodness I saved the Classic way. This is terrible. No way I'm going to pay for next year.
Go back to the old way.
As far as I can see, this is much more complicated.
you had the best system on the net and you want to change it? your new maps are absolutly rediculous!!!!!!
I dont think anyone is happy about this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh my gosh! It is so confusing now I'm not sure what I'm looking at! Can't you give us the old map back? Geez Louise! You actually did have the best product out there before you ruined it. Now the worst!
Trying to find an adjustment for the radar refresh is killing me. There was nothing wrong with the old system. It's why we use it, after all. No glitz needed.
The old program worked better than this does. It runs to fast or not at all. Need a lot of work on the program.
Please bring back the way it was. If it is not broken don''t try to fix it.
You've ruined it and made it very difficult to use. The WunderMap is essentially useless.
It no longer works at all! Bring back the one that did!
Go back to the old map, this one is complicated and doesn't work on my computer
Why in the world, would you disable full screen?
Give me the old or I move on
you had the best system on the net and you want to change it? your new maps are absolutly rediculous!!!!!!
I do not like the new wondermap! It is useless. Please return old configuration!
Now you cant return to your home screen along with others complaints.
Back to the old presentation
My idea is if it works, don't fix it
What have you done with our model maps? This is NOT an "improvement" -- this has made it MUCH harder to find the information we need to use!
As a paid subscriber for years, I like to set my radar preferences as before. This new "beta" dumped on us is terrible. I want my old "classic" view back. If I want to view your new idea, then you pay for it!!
The new version sucks please return to the 'classic' version !
HATE the new beta please revert to original style
Thank you – we appreciate the feedback!
We’re implementing several of the requests, including improving the speed of the radar animations, detecting local time zone rather than defaulting to GMT, and improving the animation controls and layout. Other requests and concerns will be addressed, but may take some time.
We redesigned WunderMap to accommodate all of the new data layers that we have added and will be adding in the future. With your help, we’ll make sure that the WunderMap continues to be a valuable tool for all our members.
We’re happy to provide support for the WunderMap or any of our products via email@example.com
I found wundermap shortly before the change and was happy with the way it worked. Now the animation is slow and unpredictable. Specifying time ranges used to be intuitive, but now it's all but useless. This is exactly what I expected when I heard that TWC had acquired it. You've taken what was a useful product and ruined it completely.
I agree that it's terrible. The radar is useless, very clunky and terrible. It used to be great. What on earth happened here???
Unsolicited call for feedback: I'd like to have video chats (skype or google+) with WunderMap users so we can talk about particular issues you're having with the map. (Video so you can share your screen and show me examples of trouble spots in the product).
If you can spare a half hour next week (May 13-17) during the daytime send me an email directly and we'll set up a time: firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, if you can't do it next week but want to be able to participate in the near future, send me a note as well!
Thanks for your help. Sorry for multiple postings...
I too did a quick search to understand why the amazing wundermap is so much worse than it was and ended up here as well. Man, I used to love the wundermap.
@mr spazi: this is a great example of support materials that we could integrate into the map!
Mr Spazi commented
How do I interpret Model Data (MSL maps) precipitation ? I think I read somewhere (not sure where) that odd number hours means predicted precipitation in the next 3 hours and the even hours are the accumulated precipitation for the past 6 hours. Is this correct? My suggestion is to make this sort of information available via the tool.
Sorry - the new Wundermap is USELESS to me. Weather Underground used to be the best weather site. I used Wundermap ALL the time - and it was great! It had all the info I needed. The new map is really bad. The animation feature?? Ha! I'll stick to the National Weather Service.
Never mind all the new data. Go back to what was the best weather site on the internet. You keep messing with it and it doesn't get better. I relied on the old map for updates on severe weather which we have here in Florida. I am a paid member of Underground for many years. Just admit that you are unable to make it better. So, get with the program and put it back the way it was.
After wrestling with the WunderMap (not) I am now starting to understand the implications of Wunderground selling out to ComCast's weather channel - I did a search on Wundermap sucks and here I am ... Like the rest of the Comcast empire it really does suck
Glitchy, slow, worthless.
"With your help, we’ll make sure that the WunderMap continues to be a valuable tool for all our members.................................." Just who are you kidding? The WunderMap stopped being valuable; it no longer works, in fact it's actually useless. Stop fiddling around and put back what you had.... then it will continue to be useful for your members.
Keep it simple! Now it F'N SUCKS!!
What happened to "if it ain't broke, don't fix it...". Weather.com bought it to bury it!! Really disgusted... Moving back to Intellicast (that is, until they get bought, too....).
The geek "engineers" have ran the good ship aground. I'm off to Intellicast too. Will check back time to time to see if good sense prevails. Looks dismal now though.
The best weather map now is located at http://www.intellicast.com/Local/WxMapFullLegacy.aspx In fact, it is better than the old Map used by Weatherunderground before the Weather Chanel moved their standard layout onto this map. The Internet is a great tool for all of us interested in local and area weather, however, the Weather Chanel has forever destroyed the Underground format. Sad, but true.
Very well said! Incompetence is running rampant with these people who developed the NEW system.
It's kinda like having the nicest house and yard on the block. Then someone comes in and does donuts in the front yard and sprays the house with Graffiti.
Although I still prefer the old display which had better functionality for my purposes, I give your team credit for the improvements you have made based on user feedback. Thank you for the opportunity to comment.
bad developers typically announce to their bosses -- before major rollouts of public software -- that they should expect a deluge of initial complaints and bad reviews, and that they should pay no attention to this phenomenon.
this always happens -- they claim -- for two major reasons: one, people are just resistant to change, and two, people usually only bother to post negative comments and not positive ones.
attention bosses: that's what's known as a TOTAL LIE. it's a hedge against incompetence. the new map really does suck. true improvements don't generate blowback like this. you are LOSING CUSTOMERS. I'd say "please put it back the way it was," but it's clear you've already sold advertising against this new ridiculousness, so here's my face-saving plea for you: please find a way to integrate your new advertising into the old display scheme. you've already wasted your money paying whoever developed the new version; I beg you not to throw good money after bad.
Still no lightning layer!
it really sucks
