This page contains instructions for setting up your WAP enabled device to receive current KCCI SchoolNet8 observations and view Live Super Doppler8 radar. These instructions assume that you have Internet service and a basic understanding how to operate your WAP device.
Our WAP data service for the KCCI SchoolNet8 has not been tested on every available platform, so we are very interested in your feedback. Output from our WAP application meets the v1.1 WML specification, so we are confident that it will work for your WML compliant device.
If you point your device at the following URL,
The KCCI SchoolNet8 sites have each been assigned a National Weather Service Location Indentifier (NWSLI). You may have noticed this 5 character abbreviation used in other applications to identify sites. If you know your SchoolNet8 site's NWSLI, you can directly call the WAP current ob program. For example,
http://www.schoolnet8.com/wap/ob.wml?station=SKCI4would retrieve the most recent observation from the KCCI Studios SchoolNet8 site. For a listing of SchoolNet8 sites and their NWSLIs, please visit the Iowa Mesonet Network Tables.
This application was developed by the Iowa Environmental Mesonet. Please contact Daryl Herzmann firstname.lastname@example.org with any suggestions and comments.
