Feature Request: display weather radar/sat map in different locations

Aidian 8 years ago in BLOX CMS 0

I would love to be able to display the weather satelitte/radar map in different locations than just as part of one tab on the weather index page.

I'd like to be able to embed it in the body of an article, and ideally use it as the lead asset the same way we'd use a photo. In a perfect world we'd be able to set the map options to display on page load (e.g. which overlays; which base layers; present image, past or future loop, whatever).

We're a Flex site. Until recently, I was able to get half way there by putting a flexible iframe around the weather map. However the provider or at least the service changed recently and this approach no longer works.

Doesn't look like it would take much to do, and it would be a big draw when we've got newsworthy weather.
