We finally solved it: German GAFOR area forecasts will be integrated in the next version of SkyDemon, due soon.
GAFOR area forecasts are like the existing GAFOR route forecasts we have, except they apply to a geographical area instead of a route. For the area you get a simple forecast of closed, marginal, difficult or open (or clear in Germany) based on cloudbase and visibility, for time intervals in two hour blocks.
SkyDemon paints the area outlines with distinctive colours so you can instantly see the best places to fly, and you can scroll forwards and backwards in time to see how they change.
GAFOR area forecast data is licensed officially by SkyDemon directly from the DWD.
