OnPOINT® Weather Data is now available for anywhere around the world. Coverage includes all major land masses world-wide – pretty much everything except the Arctic, Antarctic and the vast open ocean regions. (If you need coverage in these regions, let us know. New capability is often added due to customer need.)
Access is available via the Weather Source API. Coverage is virtually infinite and complete – Weather Source has implemented advanced interpolation algorithms to calculate the weather dynamically at any lat/lon point on the globe. Something no one else is doing. This means you are no longer limited to where weather stations, or model data grids are, but you can now get the weather conditions for the precise locations of interest virtually around anywhere in the world, any time in the past, present, and – for some parts of the globe – the future (ie forecasts). Just make a request to the weather data API for for any location by providing the date/time and any lat/lon, and the API responds instantly with the weather data at that point in time. The Weather Source API is designed to meet the needs of large-scale technologies that serve millions of customers and pull lots of data instantly, so all locations of interest around the world can be polled for weather data quickly and efficiently.
High Performance Meets Dependabilty
The Weather Source API is designed specifically for use in the most demanding real-time applications in the age of instant information for the masses. Comprehensive, 100% gap-free geographic coverage and lightning-quick response times mean applications that use the Weather Source API will always obtain data for any location, near-instantaneously. That makes it ideal for the most demanding weather-related applications that must deliver results to users quickly.
Technology behind the Weather Source API
Our API is designed for from the ground up to be the highest performance weather API. It’s built in the cloud for dependability, reliability, availability, uptime and speed. State-of-the-art scalable technology allows for virtually limitless speed/bandwidth performance able to meet the demands of virtually any application you have in mind at any scale – small to large. High quality and gap-free data mean you can count on applications receiving reliable weather data for any location and point in time with lightning-quick response times, making it ideal for wide-scale applications that require on-demand data for many users simultaneously.
