Our enhanced VisualEyes™ product has been developed in partnership with our customers and offers a whole range of features and benefits to meet your needs.

What is VisualEyes™?

VisualEyes™ is an easy to use, web-based weather alert system for energy operators and maintenance contractors. It provides five-day weather forecasts combined with site-specific, probabilistic charts and bespoke alerting.

Choose from two versions of VisualEyes™:

  • VisualEyes™ (full, strategic asset version)

    Designed for larger operators who require choice from a broad range of animated weather layers and a long range view out to 14 days in the probabilistic weather charts.
  • VisualEyes™ Light

    Offers just as many functions as the strategic asset version, but tailored to the needs of smaller operators, independent service providers and original equipment manufacturers. It provides a concise selection of animated weather layers and a shorter view out to 7 days in the probabilistic weather charts.

Both versions enable you to choose from two distinct views to suit your needs:

  • Control Room for monitoring weather conditions across multiple sites. It includes a map viewer and a collapsible alert panel. This provides an overview of forecast alerts for each site.
  • Weather Chart for forward planning of maintenance activities.

How the two versions compare.

"Using Met Office's VisualEyes™ service gives us the control to monitor exact conditions and make real-time, on-the-ground decisions which have helped to increase our efficiency, and most importantly reduce safety risks to our staff and contractors.”
