Interactive Map Aimed at Holiday Planning

by Matt Ball on December 23, 2011


Thomson Holidays, a UK-based travel agency, has developed an interactive map-based weather site that is aimed at helping travelers pick their holiday destination. Users simply enter in their planned month of travel, and their desired temperature and sunlight, and the application delivers places within Europe that fit the criteria. The application covers the climate of most major European cities.

In addition to details on hours of sunlight, there is information on rainfall and humidity levels. The sources for the weather data are BBC Weather and the MET office.

Thomson says, “It’s the million-dollar question when it comes to booking a holiday – where should I go at this time of year?”
