How does the app work?

The SunSmart Global UV app provides reliable real-time and forecast UV levels for locations from reputable and trusted agencies and translates this data into evidence-based health advice from Cancer Council Victoria to recommend sun protection for your location.

It uses forecast information from the  Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) and live UV data from the  Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) to provide sun protection times across Australia and the world.
