About Us

SWIFT WX Professional was developed by me, Rory Groves.

Weather has been a passion of as mine for as long as I can remember.
I started chasing storms about 10 years ago.

I was lost somewhere on the border of Iowa and Nebraska, with
a rotating mesocyclone barreling down on me when it occurred to me:
I need better maps.

Hi, I'm Rory GrovesThe maps on the Internet are nice, but I wanted to be able to customize the amount of data on the map and combine that data in different ways. I also wanted to be able to overlay my GPS position so I could see precisely where the storm was and where it was heading in relation to me.

Unfortunately, there was no software available that could do what I wanted.  So I wrote it.

I designed SWIFT WX Professional with two goals in mind:

  • It should be powerful enough for professional storm trackers,
  • but easy enough for everyone else to use

SWIFT WX Professional is unique from other weather software in that it does not require a degree in Meterology to use.   

If you haven't already, I hope you'll give it a try. And if you have any questions, I'm here to help you out.
