Find Your Climate

Based on your current weather

Discover something new

The Project

Here is an app that tells you what country has a climate most similar to your weather.

You can see the source code that this is based off of below.

This, of course, uses a little bit more with some javascript magic to display a nice image based off of the result.

Tip: Most areas default to Malaysia because they are average temperature, high humidity, and no precipitation. Try a friends location :)

The code

The backend code for the original python project without any of the web server modifications can be found here:
