Resolution Matters With Weather Data

When it comes to weather data, resolution matters. Our competitors serve data from a 35 km grid. OnPoint Weather’s resolution is up to 47 times more dense. What does that look like?But the difference is even more striking when you zoom in. This is when you realize the amount of data loss that occurs with a 35 km resolution.Which dataset do you think will better surface weather sensitivities your geolocated business intelligence data? When this knowledge translates to improved business decisions and subsequent profits, what order of magnitude would you assign to the increased value of OnPoint Weather?

OnPoint Weather’s resolution across the United States and southern Canada is 5 km and 22 km internationally.  In the United States, this means no grid point is more than about 2 miles (3.6 km) from your point of interest. Internationally, OnPoint data is less than 10 miles (16 km) from where your concerns are located.

However, the data resolution of other providers is 35 km. This means that one-third of the area covered is more than 10 miles (16 km) from their nearest data point. For comparison, the OnPoint Global Grid always has a data source within 10 miles, and the OnPoint North American Grid has up to 37 data points within 10 miles from a given point.
