Real-time weather radar images (Echo Intensity) are shown on Google Maps. Current motion of rain clouds can be checked by zooming in or out, which is useful as a disaster information tool about rainfall and snowfall. The update of images is every five minutes, and images in the last 7 days can be switched to display.
