What Is Trippish?

Trippish is a free service that gives you driving directions with weather forecasts along the route. Trippish not only tells you what the weather is likely to be during your drive, but also allows you to determine the best time to leave based on current forecasts.

Getting directions and weather:

Input the end and start point for your trip (a street address plus city and state or zip code) and the departure time (by typing them in or using the pop-up calendar). Now click on 'Get Directions'. Trippish will begin retrieving directions and then weather forecasts. After some seconds the map will display your trip trajectory with weather icons along the way. Put your mouse over individual weather icons and Trippish will provide a more detailed forecast for that location at the time Trippish expects you to be driving through it. In the 'Directions' pane on the left you will find detailed trip information. Scroll down to see all the directions. Hit the printer icon at the top of the Directions pane, or the print link at the bottom, to get a printer-friendly version.

If the forecast suggests you will hit bad weather, you can try another departure time and get new forecasts. Or hit the 'Is this the best time to leave?' link in the Directions pane, and Trippish will automatically look for better departure times. (There is a more detailed description of this function below.)

Trippish also lets you play around with several of the variables it uses in calculating your trip. Using the Optional Data controls, you can change your estimated average driving speed, which will change the estimated times on your directions and the times for which Trippish requests forecasts along the route. You can also modify the frequency of weather forecasts, expressed in either time or distance (for example, every hour or every 100 miles).

The map and forecasts:

Trippish displays your proposed route on the map that appears on the right. You can navigate through the map by dragging it with your mouse and by double clicking to zoom in a particular point. You can also use your scroll ball to zoom in and out. Alternatively, you can use the navigation control tool in the upper left corner of the map to move the map, zoom in and out, or change the map type.

Firefox users may experience problems navigating the map in this Beta version of Trippish. Trippish uses map data from Microsoft's Live Earth, which is not yet fully functional with Firefox. Microsoft has said that future versions of Live Earth will address these issues. We expect future versions of Trippish will be fully functional across all platforms.

The National Weather Services updates the weather forecasts Trippish uses once every hour, so there is no need to check more often than that. These forecasts are provided in 12-hour chunks (midnight to noon; noon to midnight), so minor changes in your departure time will probably result in only minor changes in forecast along the route.

Time and distances are approximations, and should not be treated as definitive. Please consider these and the other cautions displayed at the bottom of the directions pane when using Trippish.

Is this the best time to leave?

In the Directions pane, just above your detailed route information, appears a link titled 'Is this the best time to leave?' When you click on this link, Trippish will automatically check the weather forecasts along your route for alternative departure times. Trippish considers six alternative departures, each 12-hours apart. For each departure time, Trippish calculates the forecasted temperature and precipitation along the way, and picks an optimal departure time taking both into account.

We are currently experimenting with different algorithms for best departure times. We appreciate any feedback on your experience with this function.

To navigate through the map, you can drag it with your mouse or double click to zoom in a particular point. You can also use your scroll ball to zoom in and out. Apart from that, a navigate control is accesible to you in the upper left corner of the map, wich lets you move it, zoom in and out, and change the map type to Aerial.
