The ‘AUS Weather’ app is an example of an information service. It takes raw data about the weather, such as temperature, humidity and wind. It then uses the data gathered to present the information in various ways to help users gain information about the weather. For example, it shows what the current weather is, as well as the predicted weather for the week. Knowing about the weather is useful as it impacts on everyday decisions about what to wear, what activity we can or can’t do (eg. swim at the beach), what we need to bring with us (eg. umbrella or hat), and even what we need to do (eg. water plants as no rain in the next few days).
