Call for Help / Graphical Conversion of Weather Icons

Post by sgtevmckay »

I am bogged down, and I have been PM'ed several time about a grapgical conversion of the Weather.com current weather images in comparrison to the AccuWeather images.

If some one gets a chance could they develop and equivalency chart for the conversion of the images from Weather.com = AccuWeather.com

Graphical interface (Chart) would be great, but also a simple
Weather.com = AccuWeather
Image4.png = image22.png

Something like that.

Your time would be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks in advance

Do you know if weather.com has an equivalent to http://accunet.accuweather.com/wx/accunet/symset.htm?
If they do, it wouldn't take long to fix. :P
I don't think, therefore I'm not.

O.K

Fact #1 - Lot of Weather websites have their own weather values.

Fact #2 - Lot of peoples want to use some weather icons set made for the 47 values of Weather.com


Now you want to convert two different icons chart, Weather.com have 47 icons, and AccuWeather have 40 icons, each ones are based on the values from their respective websites.

For an example I took the Stardock weather set (47 icons) and tried to match those with the AccuWeather icons chart ...

-1 AccuWeather is more accurate with some values like for the icons #2, #4, and #8

-2 But AccuWeather don't have anything for some values, like for an example
Blowing snow #15
Dust #19
Haze #21
Smoke #22

An easy work around is to duplicate some icons to fill the empty ones ... but the best is to create the missing icons, or create a specific AccuWeather icons set.

@ GhostMatrix

we are working in the same idea :D

I am making a graph that will work the common weather images for AccuWeather, Weather.com, Weather Underground and Yahoo Weather.

The outline is looking like this:

Image | AccuWeather | Weather.com | Weather Underground | Yahoo
Pict | number.png | Number.png | Name.png | ???

Just need a single image, and the equivalent crossovers, so folks know how to label their weather images/icon

Great work so far :D
