New CBS Atlanta WX graphics use interactive screen setup


Although with its new graphics package, WGCL-TV Atlanta is also using new weather graphics that allow the meteorologist to interact with the map by “touching” one of four “screens” on the graphic and making it expand to fill the entire screen; though this may have existed before the HD switch.

This is an interesting effect, but the illusion could be pulled off a bit better if the virtual pole-mounted screens looked a bit more realistic. In addition, the large white lettering in the labels looks like it was slapped on at the last minute; some more carefully styled text, such as the shiny 3D look found elsewhere, would improve the look.
