We are excited to bring our latest update on some of the activities of our development and data teams!
As i mentioned last month, we recently re-wrote our web site and data tools to make it easier to build API queries and to view and download weather data. This month we have expanded the work on the web site to include our new bulk weather data features including:
- Ability to upload multiple locations from a file so those of you who track weather for 100s or 1000s of locations can quickly set up your large weather data downloads.
- Ability to schedule weather data refreshes so that you can have an updated bulk weather data set ready at the same time every day. This is great for those of you who use Excel, Google sheets or populate databases with weather data.
- We have tied the process together in a step-by-step guided data download section on the web site to make it as quick and easy as possible to download bulk data.
Our other major effort is the new forecast model plus satellite and radar data ingest architecture. This effort will further increase the spatial resolution and update frequency of our weather forecast. In addition, the satellite and radar data ingest will allow us to provide even more timely and accurate data for remote locations and for weather data elements that weather stations sometimes don't include such as solar radiation, real time precipitation and snow information. We expect this effort to start being deployed over the next month. It will be seamless to all users of our weather data with the new data sources being integrated into the current data using the same download formats and API responses.
Finally, we are also working on expanding our specialist data elements such as those for the agriculture and energy industries. We plan to be releasing new elements over the coming months based on the requests that we receive from you in this forum and to our support team.
