360° Weather App

360° is an augmented reality weather app.

360° is an augmented reality weather app. The app compares the current temperature of the own location with those of metropolises all around the world. Only colour is used to visualize the weather. Following the geographic position the metropolises are arranged around the user, so there is no display of a single city and its conditions. Navigation works trough the rotation of the user or his/her smartphone in the direction of the target metropolis. With this technique 360° becomes an augmented reality visualization.

The app displays the metropolises on a horizontal axis plus the current temperature trough the background colour. The respective background colours create overlappings which help the user to distinguish weather dependent varieties. 360° can also display different situations for example rain, snow or cloudiness. Additionally an overlay on the bottom of the screen shows the user’s position and weather condition.
