June 6, 2011 in Software (E)

[prMac.com] Prairie Ronde, Louisiana - Tee-Boy has announced that its newly released WeatherSnoop 2.0.5 for Mac OS X now supports Columbia Weather Systems' Capricorn 2000EX weather station. Designed to procure, analyze and publish weather data, WeatherSnoop interfaces with a wide variety of personal and professional weather stations as well as Internet-based data sources. This new release also features enhanced graphing and visualization features.

"We are pleased to provide Mac weather enthusiasts with support for the Capricorn 2000EX weather station," said Boisy Pitre of Tee-Boy. "Columbia Weather Systems readily provided their support and expertise in adapting their station to WeatherSnoop, and we're happy to have partnered with them."

"Increasingly, Mac users have asked us to support their platform. We've responded to their requests by collaborating with Tee-Boy to extend their WeatherSnoop software to interface with our weather stations," says CWS President Nader Khoury.

WeatherSnoop makes it easy for your Mac to interface directly to one of many popular weather stations or an Internet-based data source such as Weather Underground. Watch your weather come to life with beautifully rendered instruments and gauges that show temperature, wind, rain, and more changing in real-time. Once your weather data is obtained from the selected source, it can be published to Internet-based weather services such as Weather Underground and the Citizen Weather Observer Program. Your weather data is also available via an XML feed using WeatherSnoop's built-in web server, so other applications can obtain the latest weather quickly and easily.

The Weather Report feature summarizes the current weather conditions in a concise and easy to read format, and can even be read aloud. And since all weather values are archived in a fast and compact SQLite database, they can be edited or exported to a spreadsheet using the built-in Data Custodian.
