Description

Welcome to iRain version 2.02!

The app is licensed to the Center for Hydrometeorology & Remote Sensing (CHRS) at the University of California Irvine (UCI).

iRain provides access to real-time global high-resolution (~4km) satellite precipitation products from the PERSIANN-CCS (Precipitation Estimation from Remotely Sensed Information using the Artificial Neural Networks - Cloud Classification System), which has been developed by the research team at CHRS. The building block of iRain rests on the satellite precipitation estimates generated by the PERSIANN algorithm which has been under development for over two decades. More detailed information about PERSIANN-CCS can be found at http://chrs.web.uci.edu.

iRain allows users to visualize real-time global satellite precipitation observations and track extreme precipitation events globally. Users can also use the crowdsourcing functionality of the app to report their local rainfall information to supplement our data. A useful feature of iRain is that real-time rainfall observation data can be easily shared through social networks i.e. Facebook, Twitter.
iRain is available for iOS and Android devices.

Customer Reviews

Good app for rain totals

Very nice app. The one criticism I have is that there should be a way to turn off the crowdsource layer, or at least filter out the items with "no precipitation." Here in Southern California the map is literally filled with useless "no precipitation" markers.

And I agree with the other reviewer about mm vs inches. I'd much prefer to see this in inches.

A promised app

This app is improved over the time and being useful. Fantastic working and progressing. I hope to see more feature in the new update.

One of best app to view weather
