About RadarOmega

Welcome to RadarOmega, the next-generation weather app that takes high-resolution weather data to a whole new level. More than just radar, RadarOmega provides unique data solutions for all types of weather data that are customizable depending on your needs, whether that's before, during, or after the storm.

Dedicated to providing solutions to our industry, RadarOmega created an exclusive network of weather stations featuring live video and sensor data called cyclonePORT.

User Interface Updates- Streamlined Menus
Jun 4, 2021
RadarOmega 4.0 is a significant update in many ways. The highlight of this update will be a dramatic improvement in performance throughout the app.
Improvements include faster data loading, faster animations, no resolution loss when zooming out & increased stability when loading many frames.

The RadarOmega 4.0 update also comes with more streamlined menus and overall cleanup of the user interface. One example of this is the app state control which switches between radar/satellite/models..etc has been moved into the side menu.

We have added new archive tools for viewing historical radar along with storm reports.

See below for a breakdown of what RadarOmega 4.0 brings:
-Significant radar performance improvements
-Removed legacy radar render quality options as these are now obsolete
-Dramatic performance improvements in Dual View/Increased Animation Frames
-Quad Panel now available on iPad(Alpha Users)
-Added Hail Size Indicator to initial storm track points
-Added Historical Radar Data Viewer
-Added Date Selection for Storm Reports & Merged with Historical Radar Viewer

-cyclonePORT Enhancements
a) Tempest Weather Station Support
b) Davis Weather Link Support

Alpha users can now use IP cameras with cyclonePORT with Pan-Tilt-Zoom Controls

2) Added the National Digital Forecast Database (NDFD) for all subscribers. This allows users to view all National Weather Service (U.S.) forecast graphical grids for items such as snowfall, temperature, precip totals and more.

3) We have made some user interface optimizations aimed at streamlining and cleaning up the overall look of RadarOmega.

4) Some reported bugs from users have been addressed. Remember if you spot something please email us at support@stormmapping.com - It is very possible we do not know about an issue.

5) This update paves the way for a much larger update that will take place later this fall/early winter.

This version of RadarOmega resolves issues that were presented with the 3.0 update.. Thank you for your patience through the transition from the legacy version to this version.

First you will notice a dramatic improvement in the mapping interface performance.. Panning and zooming around the map is no where near as tedious and in most cases should be very smooth. Older devices could still experience some issues, however testing has been favorable and dramatic improvements should still be noted here.

You will notice that cities and roadways now overlay nicely over the radar data. This is a dramatic improvement you will notice over the previous release, further adding to the improved stabilization of the user interface performance.

We have brought back dual view for subscribers. We do appreciate the patience on this, we had anticipated bringing this back much sooner however it became clear we had more important issues to address and it did not make much sense to bring in dual view with a mapping interface that was extremely lagging. Once we corrected this, we developed the revamped dual functionality which you will find performs MUCH better than when it was available in our legacy version of RadarOmega.

Custom Location Dashboard has returned in this update. You can now set locations by tapping on the map or typing in a location to place custom markers on the map.

Spotter Network has returned, with the ability to see spotter locations. We do have planned full integration for Spotter Network members to share locations & send reports, this implementation has been delayed due to refactoring the mapping system.

Other work that you will not visually see but is very important is that we have reduced the data sizes being sent, allowing for faster radar site loading, reduced data delays in poor service areas and overall improved radar data reliability. We have implemented sockets to allow for real-time data transmission, which removes the need for user devices to poll for the latest data, meaning if there is new data, it will be pushed to your device.

Other modifications include menu streamlining, we moved Radar Settings to the side menu.

We have converted all image based icons to SVG, further reducing the amount of data users have to download while improving visual quality.

Overall you should find this update a dramatic improvement over the previous release. We know we still are not perfect, we are going to continue to push for continued improvement as we are fully aware of the requirements of playing in the space of a non conventional weather and radar data provider. Premium applications require premium execution and we understand your requirements of our application to continue to improve.
