Here at The Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis we run a Davis Vantage Pro 2 unit with Solar and UV sensors from a rooftop on Tottenham Court Road. The current output is via our live ‘Weather Dials‘ page, which is all singing and dancing, complete with graphs and updates every 2 seconds. Sometimes however there is a need for something simpler, a dashboard style view that changes background colour to a variety of pantone shades according to temperature:

Colours - London Live Weather

Colours – London Live Weather

Made with a tablet in mind and to hang on a wall, ‘Colours’ is designed to be a simple weather application for London at a glance, data updates every two seconds.



Thanks go to Ollie from CASA for the background script and the NounProject (Adam Whitcroft) for the icons.
