Zoomradar has developed proprietary code to gather and process NOAA Nexrad level 2 data rapidly. Local NOAA radars update every few minutes and ZoomRadar immediately grabs the data, processes it and displays it. It is one of the fastest updating interactive radar maps on the web.
ZoomRadar’s chaser layer is a partnership with SevereStudios SevereStreaming. Becoming a chaser is easy and inexpensive. All chasers should be properly trained to chase safely. You must broadcast a manual or GPS location to be placed properly on the map. Visit http://severestreaming.com/services-and-pricing for information. You can also email Kory Hartman at Kory@SevereStudios.com
The video will play well in almost all cases. There may be some isolated situations where the browser version or device OS is not compatible.
Yes we can provide chasers with a map featuring only their chase vehicle.
ZoomRadar was founded in 2007 as the internet’s first interactive radar!! Since then we have continued to expand serving 100s of media websites, digital signage companies, weather blogger websites and student run websites.
The up time is 99.99%. Our infrastructure is built in the Amazon cloud with automatic scaling. Thus at any given time multiple servers are running our maps. On a rare occasion an issue may occur. But rest assured ZoomRadar has 24/7 on call support if a problem arises.
Absolutely. Through the 16 years we have been in business we have served many huge traffic sites including CBS News, CBS Radio, Telemundo, Time Warner Cable News and various other large media sites.
Yes we have on-call 24/7 support in which we can respond in an emergency. Non emergency concerns will be addressed during regular business hours Mon – Friday 9am-5pm eastern. We try to answer emails on off hours as well.
Yes we can offer radar for the areas which can easily be added to any map. This is a small additional charge as it is added as a different layer/ feature. We do not offer radar for Canada but if you live close to the border our US mosaic will cover you.
We also offer a custom forecast product for customers who pay for the Zoom Map. This is offered as a free compliment to the radar map. So if you purchase a radar you are entitled to a premium forecast page for no cost. Being that the product is free we do not provide support for it and it is offered in limited sizes and styles. The forecast data is provided by NOAA, so there can be outages from time to time when their servers are overloaded.
The cost varies depending on number of maps needed, features on the map requested and traffic of the site we are serving. Prices start as low as $10 per month for the sidebar widget. Professional media maps will cost more, but because interactive weather is all we do, our prices are still significantly less than our competition.
From time to time we will work on custom projects. If you have a programming / development need for a weather related program please reach out to us and we can discuss. ZoomRadar at gmail.com
