Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The following is an implementation which demonstrates how to create a simple weather forecast app using Angular.

This project allows you to view the current weather conditions, as well as a 16 day future weather forecast. Weather locations are searched by ip address (on initial page load), gps position, and by searching by entering a city, state, or region in the search box.

All location and weather information is obtained by using real data from APIs. Geolocation is used to predict nearest location match.
