OB-KC 2.0

$4,385 of $4,000 goal

Raised by 55 people in 5 months

OB-KC (Ocean Beach Kellys Cove) is a weather / beach conditions website that has been operating as a public service in San Francisco since 2009. 

OB-KC serves beach users, surfers (board / wind / kite) and residents of the Outer Richmond District and Bay Area.

Funds will be used to purchase equipment including a new web server, IP web cam, new sensors for the weather station and cover hosting and service costs for 2 years.

OB-KC 2.0 will be lighter, more stable and less maintenance-intensive than the original.

Over 100,000 unique visitors tune into OB-KC every year. If you have enjoyed this non-commercial site in the past, please consider contributing a few dollars to get us back on line.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone for your support!

The basic site is up - http://ob-kc.com

We will be adding features over the next month and could use your input.

Target features include:

1. Alerts for weather advisories: high wind, small craft, high surf, flood and high bacteria.

2. Time lapses movies – every hour and each day. These consist snapshots (every minute) stitched together to make a movie for the past hour. This will be similar to previous site.

3. Snapshot button for viewers to save the current, high rez (3K X 2K) frame to their hard drive. Could also include a record button if there is demand but this could fill up someone's hard drive fast.

4. NOAA Wave forecast animation

5. Infrared satellite map - GOES NE Pacific

6. Interactive sensor graphs similar to the Weather Underground - temp, wind speed and direction, barometer, rainfall.

No flash this round.

If you have an ideas or requests, let us know. Happy to incorporate as this is YOUR site.
