WSI (Weather Services international), the global weather authority, has come out with Intellicast Boating, the first application to integrate NOAA navigational charts with the most advanced weather data available in a rich, interactive, customizable map environment. A must-have app for the more than 12.5 million registered boaters in the U.S., Intellicast Boating is an essential tool to help ensure a safe and enjoyable boating experience on the water. The new app, providing expert-level content without advertisements, is available from iTunes at special introductory prices for the iPad ($6.99) and the iPhone ($4.99) until August 10th*. Intellicast.com is WSI’s expert consumer web and mobile service.
Combining sophisticated meteorological sensing data, NOAA navigational charts and highly skilled forecasts, Intellicast Boating provides complete coverage for all those anticipating water-based activity in the continental US (CONUS), Alaska, Hawaii and the Caribbean. The new tool is also the first professional marine application to include full North American Mosaic Radar with coverage throughout the United States, large sections of Canada and the Caribbean.
The technology tools used to create the hourly forecasts for Intellicast Boating provide point-specific, localized, short- and long-term weather updates for all ports-of-call. In addition, all National Weather Service watches and warnings can be viewed either as text bulletins or overlaid within the marine interactive map.
