AR Weather App Customized for Outdoor Work Activities and Professions
Build a Mobile 3D Weather App as a Promotional Tool
Our client, SWORAD, approached us with the need to develop a mobile application that could display their meteorological measurements in 3D (as Augmented Reality). With their two proprietary radars generating a wealth of data, currently processed and presented in 2D, they aimed to push the boundaries further. They envisioned an app tailored for everyday users, showcasing the data in 3D and serving as a promotional tool for their radar products.
Transforming Data from 2D to 3D
The biggest challenge in this project was processing all the data and presenting it in a way that ordinary users could understand, enabling them to extract useful weather information from the data.
Mobile App for Enhanced Weather Insights
We developed a comprehensive mobile application for our client, currently serving users in specific locations across Slovakia. The app:
- Displays cloud information in both 2D and 3D (via AR), offering detailed insights into cloud cores, including their direction, speed, distance, and altitude.
- Provides a 50-minute weather forecast.
- Sends notifications about hazardous weather phenomena (strong winds, heavy rain, hail, snowstorms, etc.).
A significant advantage is that the client's radars provide extremely precise cloud information, surpassing the accuracy of most meteorological stations in Slovakia. This allows, for example, farmers to make better-informed decisions based on highly accurate data.
The MySkyWatch mobile application is intended for everyone engaged in outdoor activities, and professionals working outdoors, including farmers, river swimmers, or individuals organizing outdoor events and celebrations.
We also addressed integrations with other third-party tools:

From Application Design to Development
Before embarking on development, our standard practice involves meticulous design planning for the solution. This encompasses the visual appearance of the mobile application (UI), its user experience (UX), and the overall functionality and architecture of the entire system.
Mobile App for Informed Weather Decision-Making
The client holds a digital product in their hands—a mobile application provided to users in Slovakia. This app enables users to access all relevant weather data, aiding them in making informed decisions and simplifying their lives, all for a monthly subscription fee.
For the MySkyWatch project, plans include expanding the coverage to encompass the entire territory of Slovakia, providing weather forecasts for the entire country. With more data, we will be able to make more accurate predictions.
A Dynamic Tool for Expansion and Investment
Simultaneously, the client possesses a promotional tool through which they can demonstrate the data collected and provided by their proprietary radars. This opens avenues to secure investments from various entities such as farmers, and professional outdoor athletes, for the further production, installation, and operation of additional radars, expanding coverage to new territories.
