  • The Observatory Enhances its “Met on Map” Service

  • Friday, 8th December 2017

The Hong Kong Observatory enhanced its “Met on Map” web service today (8 December 2017) to support the display of higher resolution satellite photos (resolution increased from 8 km to 2 km) in the “Satellite Imagery” layer. When viewed together with other available weather graphic layers, the enhanced service allows members of the public to better discern the cloud distribution and weather conditions in and around Hong Kong.

“Met on Map” is available at http://maps.weather.gov.hk/gis-portal/web/
