Updated Flash Viewer to support the WMS (Web Mapping Services) supported by NOAA’s weather servers complete with tile image stretching to approximate image warping from the Geographic to World Pseudo Mercator (used within the Flash Viewer). Had the Viewer talking to 24 NOAA weather servers supporting more than 200 weather overlays (including storm tracks, fires, floods, radar, and so on) with full visibility control working in just over a week (on a rush schedule) to show to the FAA. Also added GeoJSON support for NOAA aviation weather.

Detail of the Layer Control and just some of the NOAA weather layers available for display. The tree-view control is my own custom control with several features not found in stock tree-view controls. For example, note the animated busy indicator showing that layers for Atlantic Storms are still loading.
