Real-time UV index in Finland. Check the UV radiation in your area easily with your mobile.

This app displays the average of UV radiation observations of the past three hours. The background color of the display, protection instructions and recommendations for how long one should be exposed to sunlight vary according to the UV index scale. The UV indexes displayed in the app are retrieved from the information system of the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The Finnish Meteorological Institute measures UV radiation from several observations stations in Finland. The app displays the UV index measured at the observation station closest to the user. The closest observation station is resolved based on the current location of the mobile device. It is also possible to browse the measurements of other observation stations.

The purpose of this app is to help people protect themselves from UV radiation. Exposure to strong UV radiation is harmful. Burned skin and trying to maintain a year-round tan causes premature aging of skin, and it may also lead to skin cancer. UV radiation may also weaken the immune system and damage the eyes.

The measurement data is read in real-time from a service provided by the the Finnish Meteorological Institute. The data displayed in the application is licensed by the Finnish Meteorological Institute: http://en.ilmatieteenlaitos.fi/open-data-licence. The protection instructions and recommendations are collected from various sources, including the website of Finnish Meteorological Institute and Wikipedia.

The UV index is an international standard measurement of the strength of the ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun at a particular place on a particular day.
