Sail-World.com : NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center wants your feedback
NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center wants your feedback

'NOAA is looking for your feedback'    .

The USA's National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration (NOAA) is looking for your assistance. Their Space Weather Prediction Center has debuted the beta version of their new website, and they want your feedback.

You can view the new site at http://origin-www.swpc.noaa.gov.

As a Beta release, the site incorporates the look-and-feel of the final site with major functions and content included. It is still in development and they are adding new content and capabilities nearly every week.

The most immediately visible change is a new home page with more timely information and a more dynamic set of graphics and links. The home page is aimed the general public rather than the experienced user.

Also, users won’t have to hunt for current conditions. A scrolling bar at the top of the home page and every other page shows the past, current and future space weather conditions using the three NOAA scales.

For experienced users and interest groups, there are direct links to pages of critical interest. These include Aviation, Electric Power, Satellite Operators, Radio Communications, Satellite Navigation, Emergency Management, etc…). Big (‘mega’) drop-down menus allow for easy navigation to your observation, model or forecast of interest.

Finally, they are investing substantial effort to ensure that the site is mobile-friendly. Users with portable devices will always be able to get their space weather fix.

The feedback wanted includes feedback on the general usability (look-and-feel?, functionality?) as well as the content (suggestions?, missing?, corrections?).

They admit they won’t be able to incorporate all suggestions, but they will certainly be a guide as they move to their final, polished release.

A feedback link is provided at the upper right or just click http://origin-www.swpc.noaa.gov/content/contact-us.
