It is summer now at the northern hemisphere and in summer you can have severe weather conditions and thunderstorms. Most of the times, people get warned for this type of weather so that they can secure everything around the house. Weather web sites are regularly checked for rain and storm zones. When will it start? Will it come in our direction? When will it be safe again? Everyone has these kind of questions. The answer is in showing live doppler radar.
Luckily for us, there are many resources online that are available to display these weather info, alerts and live doppler radar on information screens in their factory, school, pub, take-away restaurant etc. There are free resources on the internet where you can grab an image and use it in your presentation. But very often, the quality of those images are poor and displays name of the website or source on it. Maybe you don’t want that to be on your weather information screens, and you want to have high-resolution images without any brand or source on it? There are paid services where you can have access to a library of high-quality and related images. DigiChief.com is such a service for the professionals. You pay a fee and you get access to weather information, weather maps and live doppler radar, but as well as stock quotes, traffic information, horoscopes and many more. Whatever you might need.
Let’s work out a sample weather presentation with a high quality live doppler radar image from DigiChief in combination with our DataPoint for PowerPoint add-on for real-time content.
When we open our personal DigiChief URL at a browser, then we see an image like this. Note that we have masked the URL here in this screenshot. Replace this with the URL of your own subscription.
Next, you can add other weather images or more information slides for your digital signage information screens.
