WPRI 12 – Pinpoint Weather Network
Client: WPRI / Lin Media
The Pinpoint Weather Network provides weather data pulled from weather stations around the state of Rhode Island. WPRI has a number of weather stations that report weather data and provide XML files containing that data. The Pinpoint Weather Network provides a web application that reads each of those XML files and renders live weather data for each weather station.
The front-end interface allows users to choose a location. Once a location is chosen weather data from that location is pulled in and displayed alongside a sponsored image and message.
