I thought perhaps some people might benefit from these websites. I made the list to give to my teachers, but figure others could use it. Feel free to add more to my list. And Mods, if you think that any of the sites shouldn't be on here because of competition reasons, delete the ones that you have an issue with.

Accurate and precise weather forecasts Korea wide.

www.digital.go.kr

You'll need to use Internet Explorer for this site and allow the ActiveX installer. Then click on the graphic on the left that says "Graphic" (the brown leaf)

The site is in Korean but you can use my translation: Download from here:

Thanks so much for this, the Korea Meteorological Administration is staffed by a bunch of idiots.

Wonder what the doctor has given you in those little packets? Well, use this site to check it out.

http://www.druginfo.co.kr/identy/identy_char.aspx

use Google Translator if you really can't figure it out, but it's quite self explanatory.
Type in the numbers/letters on the pill, ignore the images, and scroll down to the colors. Then click research. You might have to go through a few pages, but you'll find your pills. Then Google the name for details.

Or, if you have the prescription, type in the letter and numbers
(ex. A10098098), and get details that way.

More on public transport:

Intra- and inter-city buses:

Mapping:

The satellite imagery is not as up-to-date or complete as Google's, but you can search for things like businesses, bus routes and the weather.
