What is the Emulator:
The Emulator is a goal-oriented object to overcome the home-made handicap of creating an authentic-looking weather data system for broadcast level output. The system was created around the likeness and specification defined by the Weatherscan Local product circa 1999-2003 by The Weather Channel. This is not a powerpoint
What is the Project:
The Project, started in 2003 by Brian (aka cc17926), is an attempt to re-create a discontinued market object for personal informative uses. Much private research was obtained and still in progress to help facilitate the fullness of this project. The emulator is not restricted to features shown on the original product but open to many possibilities as long as they fit the correct format.
