Radar Imagery Zoom Magnification (Swackett PRO)

By popular demand we’ve carried forward the multiple radar views of specific location in Swackett PRO — with two different improvements:

  • These new view are now centered on your exact location.
  • The base imagery and radar overlays are high-resolution.

These views have been incredible popular in their simplicity and the value of the visual information they provide.

You can view Satellite imagery and radar (where available) by clicking Local Radar / Imagery… from the View Menu.

On larger screens if you make the default Swackett window taller a mini- Satellite strip will pop out and always be visible. Click on that to view multiple imagery views.

 

Issue with Select Local Radar Imagery

Select Swackett apps are experiencing “stuck” local radar imagery in different parts of the country.

If your local radar does not present as an animated radar image for your location — or you see a gray placeholder page — please let by know by submitting a tech support ticket. We are able to work with you to flush the page and get your local radar running again.

We’re sorry for an inconvenience caused by this issue — and we appreciate your patience.

Scheduled Outages for High-Resolution Radar Imagery Upgrade

Swackett app infrastructure will undergo scheduled outages from Thursday, March 2nd thru Sunday, March 5th as we migrate our radar systems to new, high-resolution satellite and radar imagery. This outage will allow us to perform maintenance on the primary servers used by all Swackett information assets.
