WU Animated GIFs?
« on: February 11, 2018, 10:08:07 PM »
I have been using a link to a WU animated gif that shows the eastern pacific and a portion of the USA. I have no idea where I got the URL but it is as follows:
It has a nice animated image but is only 320 x 240 pixels. What is confusing is that in the URL, a portion of the directory referenced says "640x480" which would lead one to assume the image would be 640 x 480. I have searched the WU website but have been unable to find any images that look like this one. I am really looking for one similar to the one listed above (and animated) but that is at least 640 x 480 in size.

Thanks! That is exactly what I was looking for. How did you find the link? They used to have a directory of available images but I haven't been able to find such things in a long time. The WU Maps Catalog is very limited.

I've been on WU for almost two decades and have gotten pretty good at guessing their naming systems.  8-)

Glad it worked out for you.
