myRWIS Overview

The myRWIS feature provides a means to display current observations and camera images for a set of user selected sites. The system will loop through the selected sites, displaying each site for a user defined duration. The sites that you select will be stored as a cookie in your browser, so the next time you visit, it will remember your settings. The system will display RWIS sites with or without cameras.
