Subject: Soliciting Comments on the Customizable Mapping Widget

         and Mobile Web Page Through March 19, 2014


NWS is seeking user comments on the Customizable Mapping Widget

and Mobile Web Page through March 19, 2014. The NWS Center

Weather Services Unit (CWSU) in Fort Worth, TX (ZFW) and the

Dallas/Fort Worth Forecast Office (FWD) are testing a new

Customizable Mapping Widget and Mobile Web Page service. The

service brings together a variety of geospatial data products on

the same background map for analysis and decision making. 


The version of the tool customized for the CWSU is a Google Map-

based tool that contains many of the data sets necessary to

provide the CWSU with the flexibility to create customized maps

in service of the FAA. The customized page will also be evaluated

on partner smartphones as the un-embedded version of the same

tool functions on a wide range of today’s smart phone devices.


The Decision Support Map, along with a description of how to use

the map, is available at:
