STICKERS FOR YOUR WEBSITE

Post by darrog » Fri Nov 06, 2009 4:10 pm

Have found the following two site recently from which I have obtained free stickers for my web-site - I like them, but let me know what you think.

1.) www.MoonConnection.com - I wanted a 'moon phase' sticker and wasn't happy with the one from Wunderground and found this.
A like subtle, simple and stylish and I think it looks fine.

2.) www.meteorologica.info/ - I wanted a surface pressure chart and found this - they have lots of charts for lots of different things and only a case of copy+paste the HTML.
I just changed the size of the chart to fit where I wanted it on my site.

Found the below on http://www.getaforecast.com/weather-charts-pressure.php
It is the Met'O own colour atlantic pressure chart. Borrowed the code and it works, HOWEVER, read the legal bit on the Met'O site and seems that they do not allow you to embed their images onto your site - they will let you create links though and you can buy some feeds from them (£550), but did not appear to include this one.
I have e-mailed the Met'O for clarification - will let you know

Finally found the code.
Below is the HTML code if you want the Met offices own Atlantic pressure charts on your site.
previously I had the Meteorologica one (liked it) sitting snugly at the side of my BBc 3day weather forecast, but when I reduced the width of the Met one it didn't look right, so kept it at the same size which means now below the forecast, creates a bit of a row, but eh, I do prefer the met one.

good news re the using the Met'O atlantic surface pressure charts on my site.
I didn't accept the first answer and have now had a reply from the IPR manager and they 'do not forsee any issues with me using the charts' - happy days.
they have asked me to complete a licence application request which apparently won't take long to process and then i presume that I'll be able to use it.
Once I have this I will merely post a 'sorted, got it, if you want to use them yourself let me know and give you the details'.

Are you using the the charts from the above links ?

I woulndt mind using them ?

I have something slightly different which I cobbled togther some time ago
http://www.bramptonweather.co.uk/charts.html

I didnt ask for any permission though, not as if I am making any money out of them. Anyway If I send them data for nothing at least they can give some data back in return in the form of a few charts etc

Paul, I'm not at at home at present, but I will e-mail you separately with what I did, have been told, etc.
I filled in their licence application form today and await their final decision, but their e-mail did say "can't see no reason why not".

YES it is, for Carlisle. The Meto finally let me know last week that it was working.

I was trying to use the "Code" button to see if it would display on the forum but it didnt

I have now added it to my website
