☀️🌧 Yet another weather app for Singapore

Story

This began with my long-time curiosity on how to convert raster radar images into vector on a map. I've been using Weather.gov.sg's Rain Areas map whenever it rains, so I thought if I could convert that raster image to be used on Mapbox GL JS. I could put the whole raster image on Mapbox but choose to make it vector because I like it smoother.

After few trials and errors, I cooked up the Rain GeoJSON SG project, a straight-forward API server to convert rain area radar images (Singapore) to GeoJSON.

Since I've gone this far, so I thought "why not?", let's build yet another weather app for Singapore! Thus this project just happens.

Technicalities

Node.js and Parcel are required to run this web app. Here's a list of readily-provided scripts:

  • npm start - starts a local server
  • npm run build - build the files for production in dist folder
