Helsinki Testbed Viewer 2.0 is an Android application which shows the weather maps from the Helsinki Testbed project (http://testbed.fmi.fi/). With the application, you can, for example, view the real-time rain radar or current wind speed and direction. The maps cover the Southern Finland. You can also see your own location on the map.
The application supports displaying the following weather maps:
– Rain & temperature
– Wind speed
– Wind direction
– Air pressure
– Dew point
The Helsinki Testbed project is owned by the Finnish Meteorological Institute (http://ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/). The Helsinki Testbed Viewer 2.0 application HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH the Helsinki Testbed project or the Finnish Meteorological Institute. This application is a private project and it just downloads the weather maps from the Helsinki Testbed project websites and shows the maps on Android phones. All map data is copyrighted to the Helsinki Testbed project.
Helsinki Testbed Viewer 2.0 is based on the GPL licensed sources from the “Helsinki Testbed Weather View” android application (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=fi.asd.testbed) originally developed by Petri Laakso (firstname.lastname@example.org). The original version is currently not working anymore. Therefore, this project was created to continue the work.
