An easy to use web service interface to access the TrueWeather infrastructure to query historical and real time weather data and forecasts, for use in your own applications and services. Our data comes from a range of local and international data providers, as well as data provided by our own forecast model and weather stations. For use in GIS, we have coded examples to help you display weather data directly into command and control applications. For big data – correlate our historic weather data with your historic sales or consumption data and use the results to improve your business forecasting and trigger points based on forecast weather conditions.
Downer sought to improve its in vehicle access to real time weather data for its road maintenance staff, beginning with the laying of salt and grit during freezing conditions. The estimated cost savings from making more accurate decisions on when to lay salt and grit were very substantial. The solution required us to integrate real-time weather data and forecasts with observations of road surface temperature, OAT, and dew-point collected by mobile weather stations, display this blended data in real time in the vehicle in a manner that gave the operator the best information possible for the making a decision.
For clients that require a mobile weather station solution, our selected in vehicle solution has an exceptional rate of real time data acquisition and is simple to install. It has been well tested in winter and summer conditions in extreme continental weather environments. The sensors capture road surface temperature, barometric pressure, light intensity and OAT. The data is time stamped and geo-referenced derived values are calculated, including dew point. A Bluetooth interface allows the sensors to be accessed wirelessly from an Android tablet. Communication of the sensor data to our TrueWeather server environment is handled by the cellular connection in the tablet, or an external cellular hotspot in situations where the vehicle is operating in marginal cellular coverage.
MetTrigger’s specialsed weather models provide some of the best
localised weather forecasts and assumptions available.
