Find the Northern Light with the application Iceland Aurora Alert

Find out where and at what time the Northern Light is visible in Iceland

Iceland Aurora Alert is an application that shows users when and where the Northern Light in Iceland will be visible. The application forecasts Northern Light activities a few days in advance and shows users at which locations and at what time the Northern Light is predicted to be the strongest and most visible. In addition, users can set alerts if aurora activity is expected in a specific area and can share these alerts with others.

To make accurate predictions about Northern Light visibility, the application uses metrological data from multiple sources, such as the Icelandic Meteorology Office, and combines this data with other data, such as data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. By making the Northern Light predictable for the public, Iceland Aurora Alerts enables people to easily plan Aurora tours in Iceland.

Iceland Aurora Alert is one of the over 500 use cases published on the European Data Portal. If you are aware of another inspiring use case, share your experience and knowledge about different applications and websites using open data with the EDP via mail, Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn.
