Granada North West Today
Quote:
The new graphics have been developed with our weather provider, MeteoGroup, and use its state-of-the-art MeteoEarth software, which has been customised with the Channel 4 Weather look.

The easiest way to describe MeteoEarth is to think of Google Earth meets high-resolution weather data, rendered real-time in full HD at 60 frames per second.

Well I hope they dial the rendering back to 50 frames per second in the UK...

Does this mean that the new BBC Weather graphics can still have the land in luscious brown?


I'd expect the platform to be independent of the graphic design. (i.e. you buy into the platform, but implement your own 'look')
