This project fell through because the developer wanted way too much $$$ per month while the initial development was going on.

I am adding more severe weather type stuff into Global Tracks 2010.
Currently I have built in high res imagery from Virtual Earth, so it is kinda like a google app with a lot of wx stuff. The sever weather stuff will start out as SPC type shapefile overlays, NWS warning polygons. I have a huge database of storm reports that a user can plot, filter, analyze by time, location, type etc... realtime storm reports will be plotted too.
I also have tornado tracks that can be plotted and analyzed.

My plans are to improve the satellite and radar stuff beyond plain imagery overlays to more of the raw data displays with some interrogation.

I also plan on keeping this software free, so some of the development may be slow coming do to funds, but I'll continually try to improve it. I may consider taking donations in the future to help progress the development, but for now, I'll keep the expenses to myself.

I guess the next step might be renaming the program since Global Tracks was a "Tropical" type program. Now that I'm expanding it, a new name might be needed.

Cool man. Money is tight for everyone right now, so those developers will have to get in check sooner or later I feel. Do what you can...hell, to make it easier on you have you ever thought about contacting Andrew Revering of F-5 data and trying to team up with him on development? I'm sure with the ideas between both of you.....a super product could come out of that. Hell, or even contacting Mike Gibson.
