Like many AIARE instructors I use your website a lot in my classes. (Thanks for offering us free pro membership!) I really like the wind plot feature, but was wondering if you could put in past wind direction as well -- perhaps up to 48 hours. This would a very useful feature to assess which areas maybe wind loaded.

    Hi Tony,

    I can totally understand why this would be helpful. I'm not sure we have access to that data, and it's not something we could get to for a while.

    Thanks for taking the time to give us feedback! We are working hard to ensure CalTopo continues to improve and that work is often thanks to users sharing their thoughts and feedback. We'll consider these requests going forward. We often take a variety of user requests and incorporate them into a larger function, so stay tuned as we release new features throughout the year!

    Hi Julie,

    Thanks for your response. I wouldn’t think it would be that hard to get that information, but I’m not a tech person so I don’t really know how it would work to integrate that into your system!

    As an avalanche forecasting tool, it would be super useful both for recreational users and professional alike. I hope it can be added to your great product someday!
