Another item that’s been long-standing on the to-do list was to incorporate the use of the
GPSLogger for Android app for those chasers in other countries who cannot use Spotter Network. Today, that’s been implemented with our first storm chaser outside of the USA!
I’m not sure how the storms are in other countries, so this is exciting to be able to include international storm chasers! Ben Taylor is the first in that list and he’s from the UK. He’ll be able to update his GPS using the GPSLogger for Android app, and also stream the chase to YouTube. Personally, it’ll be fun to see what chasing looks like in other countries!
The next step is to try and get radar working for the UK - but for now, we’ll have to enjoy the chase without it.
If there are any features you think would be great for Tornado Channel, please contact us!
If you know a storm chaser who streams video online and would be great to be included on our map, please pass this information to them and have them apply to join!
