IWIS stands for Intuitive Weather Information System and is an iPhone application to display weather data of Singapore in an intuitive and comprehensible way. It is a localized software which accesses several local weather stations distributed in the state of Singapore.
The features are user-friendly for overseas travellers and those who would like to understand the weather easier. After choosing the station, there are condition tags and suggestions provided to explain how it will feel like under this weather condition, instead of only showing the numbers. The data is presented as visual metaphors to understand the information as quick as possible. For users who prefer the discrete values, the application can be switched to data mode, where the actual value can be seen.
This application is developed by Mobile Interactive Media & Entertainment Group of Keio-NUS Cute Center at National University of Singapore, and supported by National Research Foundation (Singapore).
