Columbus, Georgia (October 3, 2011) Outdoorsmen and women who demand accurate weather forecasts, detailed Doppler radar, and severe weather alerts can now have all of this and more for free on their iPhone, iPod and iPad. Hunters and fishermen need complete weather information, so Realtree and Weather Decision Technologies (WDT) teamed up to make certain that every key weather feature outdoor enthusiasts need is available in this new weather app.
Key features include:
- GPS location-based current weather conditions
- live/local/animated radar and satellite information
- hourly, daily and extended forecasts
- severe weather alerts
- sunrise/sunset data
- dew point
- barometric pressure
- videos of hunting tips
“The Realtree Base Station provides the highest quality weather on the market today. Outdoor activities demand timely, accurate and powerful weather intelligence – this app delivers all this… and more,” said Mike Eilts, chief excutive officer, WDT.
Anyone familiar with vast array of readily available on-line radar will be blown away by the level of detail found in this app. Users can utilize the "pinch" method to zoom in and out of the weather map – all the way down to street level. The radar animates on demand, creating a continuous loop and allowing hunters to better predict storm paths.
The free Realtree Base Station weather app automatically detects the users' location and shows this with a pin symbol. Browsers can also simply type in the name of a location and view or store it for use at anytime.
For those wanting even more features, useful in-app upgrades can be added for a small fee of 0.99 cents each. These include barometric trends, lightning strike data, and Realtree's Game Activity Meter.
Realtree's Game Activity Meter utilizes years of field research combined in a formula that takes into account temperature, dew point, barometric pressure, wind direction/speed, cloud cover and moon phase. All of these factors are used to calculate a 1-to-100 Activity Grade Scale. The higher the number, the greater the expected game activity. Many hunters want solunar data, so Realtree has included this data separately within the Game Activity Meter..
