Ken:

Thanks so much for this information and for your support of WeatherCat in your template.

This is a major rewrite of the mesonet-map* scripts from Version 3 to the Version 4.00 - 23-May-2018 release today:

1) no Google map key is required.  The new script set uses the open-source Leaflet/OpenStreetMaps set of scripts to provide the same functionality and improved display/performance.
2) support is provided for OPTIONAL Mapbox.com (Terrain3 and Satellite) maps if you have a Mapbox.com Access Token, but it is not required to display using the included 5 different map tile providers.
3) The map markers no longer display 'N/A' legends for 'Offline' stations.
4) A right-click context menu on the map is now available to assist navigation, and provide info to you for custom configuration of map zoom, center and clustering behavior.
5) the Catalan and Finnish (Suomi) language plugins were fixed

See the docs and download from https://saratoga-weather.org/scripts-mesonet-map.php

Best regards,
Ken

General Weather Discussion / Last blooms of Spring. (Re: Spring 2018)
« Last post by elagache on Yesterday at 10:14:53 PM »
Dear WeatherCat observers of the seasons turning,

May has been cool but dry.  There have been some off-shore wind events that have further dried out all the plants.  It is time for the last blooms of the season - wild mustard:



Today it has been cloudy and we even got 0.01" out of the drizzle.  However, besides the mustard the grasses are brown and turned to seed.  Monday may be the unofficial start of Summer, but here in California the dry season is definitely upon us.

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]

Iím loving this upgrade! Has there been any work on the iPad app?

What kinds of changes would you like to see on the iPad app?

Well, full screen goes without saying. One thing Iíd like to see added from the current iPhone version would be the ability to generate graphs natively in iOS, if this is possible.

Iím experiencing a bug that occurs after I unsuccessfully connect to my local host. e.g.
I try to connect too early during/after a WeatherCat restart, my phoneís connection to my WiFi is too weak.

After the failure to connect I wait and restart the app, but it doesnít matter how long I wait (hours) or how many times I restart the app, I am unable to connect to localhost.

The only way I am able to fix this is by connecting to a remote server (trixology or disable my WiFi and use LTE to connect to my WeatherCat server). After this successful connection, I enable wifi, connect to my closest AP, and then switch back to my localhost, which it finds immediately.

Can the benevolent overseers kindly move this to the About WeatherCatRCP 1.0 topic?

Dear WeatherCat fans of a certain rascally billy-goat station wagon, . . . . . 

Today was the day!  Early in the morning I pushed Biquette out of the garage so that she could get nice and clean.  She even got a bit of a bubble bath in the process:



Then it was up on the flatbed transport truck:



We lucked out!  It was the same driver that brought her to Orinda Motors the previous time!  The trip was uneventful and after a few miles, she was unloaded at the Orinda Classic Car Center (the division of Orinda Motors now devoted specifically to classics.)



Finally she was parked right next to her engine so that they could bond once more!



Mission accomplished!  [bounce]

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
