Website & Programming Project
In November 2013 AtmoVantage was contracted by Macon Museum of Arts & Sciences to provide programming for four TV monitors that were part of the Weather Wall exhibit. Each monitor needed to display a loop of the National Radar, Regional Radar, National Satellite, Regional Satellite and local weather conditions.
The four programs were originally written in Visual Basic and simply retreived the required image loops and data from publically-available sources from the National Weather Service, then displayed them on the exhibit’s TV screens.
