Visualizing Weather Data
Mapping and analytics are an increasingly important element of business intelligence. Weather Source has the ability to provide its dynamic weather and climate data in a variety of geospatial products, including GIS layers for ease of integration into any GIS application or environment.
Whether providing access to geospatial-ready weather data via our lightning-fast OnPoint API or developing large-scale, custom solutions, OnPoint Geospatial products help your organization effectively visualize weather and climate trends. For example, geospatial products can illustrate what path a hurricane took on a particular day or where in a region people will be affected by certain temperatures.
OnPoint Geospatial products can incorporate deep, historical data with present and forecast data to provide powerful context. Additionally, our data is built for easy integration with other geospatial file formats such as U.S. Census data.
OnPoint Geospatial | Used By:
Financial Institutions to visualize how weather has the potential to affect commodity prices. For example, a drought in the Midwest can have significant effects on how much corn will be sold in the next month.
Agricultural Organizations to visualize short- and long-term forecasts then determine optimal timing for planting. Geospatial products are also effective for analyzing efficiencies post-harvest.
Insurers to establish actuarial models and prepare to handle large volumes of claims in response to severe weather events.
Energy Companies, including those specializing in solar and wind power, to better understand cloud cover dynamics, average wind speeds, the effects of elevation, and more.
