OCENS Upgrades its 'WeatherNet' Weather on Demand Service

Press Release
Wednesday, July 25, 2012

OCENS announces version 3 of its award-winning WeatherNet Weather-on-Demand service.

The manufacturers explain that WeatherNet 3 transforms the product selection process by asking users for their general weather interests and then responding with definitive file suggestions for the given area of operation. No need to get specific, just let WeatherNet know whether you’d like GRIB or classic weather charts, text files or buoy products, fishing data or ice forecasts, satellite pictures or tide information etc.

WeatherNet’s intelligent content algorithm then merges users general interests with their present or proposed location, anywhere in the world, and the work by OCENS professionals who have mapped each one of the thousands of products in its library. The result is a personalized list of products that satisfy the specific insights required for prevailing and predicted weather, ocean and fishing conditions.

Some of WeatherNet 3’s new features and capabilities:
    •        GPS integration
    •        OCENS Positional Packet sharing with OCENS GRIB Explorer and MetMapper
    •        Content Wizard and Portal mode

    •        Zoom capabilities on all content reference maps
    •        Portal mode tracking of present geographic position relative to selected content
    •        Satellite Dialer for auto-connect/disconnect to satellite phones and docking stations
    •        Integration with Optimizer, webXaccelerators, and Iridium AxcessPoint
