Using DAKboard's Photo URL feature, you can add an animated weather map as a background, or alongside your other DAKboard content blocks. Follow along below to add an animated weather radar map to your DAKboard!



Adding an Animated Weather Map from WeatherUnderground:


In your DAKboard account, select a Custom Screen to edit. Click the Add a Block button and choose URL under the Photos section:



Select the newly added block and click the Edit button. Next, open a new tab or browser window and go to WeatherUnderground: https://www.wunderground.com/maps/radar/current. Select your desired region from the dropdown, then click the Play Animation button. Then, right-click on the map and choose Copy Image Address (wording may vary slightly based on your browser):




Back in DAKboard, edit the photo block, and paste in this copied URL:



Click save changes, resize the block as needed, and view the map on your DAKboard!


Troubleshooting:

At times WeatherUnderground maps may fail or have issues loading. This is due to the way WeatherUnderground gathers its data from personal users Weather Stations and other Radar Sources. Unfortunately, DAKboard cannot control these failures or when they will be fixed. Things you can do that may correct the issue for you are below:


Recreate the URL:

Sometimes simply recreating the URL using the steps above will get the map functioning again. These URLs can fail over time and may need to be regularly recreated.


Reach out to WeatherUnderground:

These failures can sometimes go unreported to the source. We recommend reaching out to WeatherUnderground when you find the information to be out of date, the map is no longer animated, or when the service goes blank. Reporting directly to WeatherUndground is the fastest way to get your service back up and running.
