Uber Weather is launched – Founding Partners Wanted

This interesting update comes via the Uber Weather blog… great stuff!

Uber Weather is launched. You can find it here:


Or the Google Chrome Web Store HERE.  And there are videos here Part 1 (4:46 min) and Part 2 (4:48 min). As well there are a lot of videos on the site.

Uber Weather (UW) looks simple but has the potential to “Change the Game”. It uses GIS (Geographic Information Systems) technology to facilitate “Visual Search”. Google built its success on providing the best “Text Based Search” financed by minimalist advertizing that was highly targeted. UW takes that to the next level. Check out the site and watch the videos, you should start to grasp the massive potential. So far, we have targeted “Skiing”. You will discover new things about skiing using UW.

We need you. UW was built by one developer (me) with very limited resources. Thankfully Google makes it possible for this to happen. To take UW to the next level, we need “Founding Partners”, with passion, skill and maybe some money 

The core areas of need are:

  • Language / Culture – UW needs to service the globe. We need translator developers today!
  • Weather Programmers – more, better, faster.
  • GIS Programmers – more visual search, discover, learn.
  • UX – make UW the best user experience.
  • Video Creators – Weather videos daily from around the world.
  • Marketing, SEO, Partner Programs – the world needs to find UW.
  • Business – Someone needs to run the company.
  • Innovators – the exiting part.

UW is already sponsored by Microsoft BizSpark and Google provides an amazing amount of support. But our ambition is to serve hundreds of millions of users with a new, “No SPAM” (display ads) experience, with a product they can use everyday and never “out grow”.

It is very simple to get involved. Do something (talk is cheap). Show your passion. Tell us.

Aibot X6 uses Leica Nova MultiStation for accurate geospatial data without GNSS

(Norcross, GA /Kassel, Germany, 1 October, 2014) – At this year’s INTERGEO in Berlin, Leica Geosystems and its sister company, Aibotix, will present a solution for accurate positioning of the Aibot X6 without GNSS. The UAV can be tracked accurately with the Leica Nova MultiStation to define the exact position. Using the Aibot X6 together with the Nova MultiStation can inspect top surfaces of aircrafts in hangars, enabling users to rely on its proven functionality without the support of GNSS. The UAV, equipped with Leica Geosystems’ 360° prism, flies over the aircraft and takes high-resolution images of its surface. This solution helps, for example, to ascertainlightning strikes and effectively document […]
