The simple-to-use ‘Hyperlocal Rainfall’ App uses GPS location for point-to-point journeys, to provide highly-localised rainfall predictions for imminent time-windows, allowing users to plan their journeys. Using the App allows them to undertake healthy activities, to save wasted time or dress appropriately – making life better – by using constantly shifting and updated detailed data to predict localized rainfall and rain-free periods. The App can help answer questions such as:

  • Can I cycle or do I have to drive?
  • Will it rain soon and save me watering the garden or
  • do I need to get the hose out?
  • Can I walk the dog now, or a bit later, and avoid ‘wet dog’ syndrome?
  • Can I walk or cycle now without getting soaked?
  • Can I leave my raincoat at home or should I take it?
  • Is it OK to put the washing out?
  • Is today the right day to fix the roof?
  • Do we have a BBQ today?

 

The main benefits from using the Hyperlocal Rainfall:

  • Predictions are based on actual rainfall that is updated every 5 minutes so they are accurate
  • Allows users to skip forward in time to see if they can delay their Journey start
  • Users can see the predicted rainfall along the course of their Route
  • Can create specific Hyperlocal Hotspots for any Council. This ‘opens’ a window around an area so that anyone can use the app in this area. Specifically created for Councils and Smart Cities so that the app remains free to residents.
  • All API based so information can be readily integrated into your own platforms/services
