PressureNet boasts a community of fellow citizen scientists helping to create the most accurate real-time, hyperlocal weather forecast.
PressureNet uses barometric sensors built into select Android devices (see if yours is listed below) to automatically detect changes in atmospheric pressure, predicting hyperlocal weather activity before it occurs. We incorporate your sensor data into our own weather models, which produce local temperature forecasts for you, our users.
Not only does your automatic sensor data make your weather forecast more accurate, but we also incorporate user-reported weather conditions to train and correct our models. Our forecast accuracy improves as more users join!
Note: Temperature forecasts are for North America only right now. We will be adding more locations as users request them. Send us an email to let us know you're interested! email@example.com.
- NEW: Crowdsourced sensor data reflects real-time hyperlocal weather forecast for the next few hours.
- Report real-time weather changes in your area to other PressureNet users.
- Pressure drop/rise alerts: notifies you when your pressure starts to fall -- indicating oncoming clouds, rain, and good weather ahead!
- Home screen widget allows for user submitted weather updates and displays real-time barometer readings and hourly/on-demand pressure changes.
PressureNet works with the current list of Android devices:
Galaxy S3, S4, S5, S6 Galaxy Nexus Galaxy Note, 2, 3, 4 Nexus 4, 5, 6, 10 LG G3, G4 Motorola Xoom RAZR MAXX HD Xiaomi MI-2, MI-3 Droid Ultra Moto X HTC One (M8)
