SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As the demand for intelligent access to big data continues to grow, CustomWeather, Inc., a specialized provider of high resolution weather forecast and alert services, has developed its Cloud Weather Service™. The Cloud Weather Service (CWS) is a powerful new method to deliver raw weather model data, derived weather data products, and archived historical data to clients. CWS offers distinct advantages and differences over traditional point forecast delivery.
Customers in time/weather-sensitive industries such as Energy, Agriculture, Insurance and Commodities, are now able to access millions of grid points contained within raw model datasets and hundreds of different weather variables. These weather variables include many that are considered obscure or difficult to obtain. Potential evaporation rate, sunshine duration, and wilting points are examples of uncommon weather variables that are easily extracted using CWS.
From these huge weather data sets, CustomWeather clients access and integrate only the data they need into their systems for analysis in conjunction with other data variables. Access to the data is immediate after its release from government sources, including NOAA. CustomWeather delivers the data in several formats including XML, JSON and netCDF.
Geoff Flint, President and CEO of CustomWeather, stated, “CustomWeather makes it easy for our clients to access massive data sets, and quickly extract only the weather data they need in formats that are easily synthesized into their business systems. With Cloud Weather Service, the next-step development opportunities are exciting: we can create immediate data comparisons between model runs and do a quick trend analysis. As a customer-centric weather business, our mission is to remain nimble and responsive to our customers’ individual needs. Many of our clients need immediate access to weather data that isn’t readily available elsewhere, so we developed the best way to provide it.”
