Weather Underground has announced the availability of its new interactive weather map. Sharing its namesake with the website, the WunderMap is an interactive visual display of weather information that is plotted and overlaid on a map interface.

Users can choose from a variety of weather layers, including animated radar, current conditions, severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings, live webcam images and animated infrared or visible satellite imagery showing cloud coverage.

Users will find the new feature useful in that it provides a meaningful and uniform representation of multiple types of weather data in an easy to use, interactive format.

The level of user-interactivity that can be achieved with the WunderMap makes it a powerful tool for avid meteorologists, while still maintaining a clean and intuitive design for the casual weather observer.

"We have created the most comprehensive, user-friendly interactive weather map available," said Alan Steremberg, president and co-founder of Weather Underground. "No other online weather map offers such a range of options or layers that can be overlaid or taken away as directed by the user. Someone can select to see only the radar loop or they can choose to view the temperature readings from the Personal Weather Stations in any given area."

In addition to the new WunderMap feature, Weather Underground currently offers a comprehensive suite of weather related services, including the recently announced sports weather feature, streaming weather radio, personal WebCams, Wunder Photos, and the Personal Weather Station (PWS) network, which allows users to link their home-based automated weather stations to the Weather Underground community.
