How do the weather maps work?

Our weather maps include weather layers that are designed for use on top of a map. The Weather Maps contain weather data as commonly used map tiles, thus they are compatible with Open Street Maps, Google Maps, HERE Maps, Bing Maps and any other maps using the standardised tile indexes.

You can also use Foreca’s simplified maps together with weather information. Contact sales for more information.

How is the weather data for the weather maps delivered?

The API is based on HTTP queries, which are sent to Foreca servers. The service responds by providing graphics in vector format (SVG) or raster (PNG, JPG). The service can also be requested to list available data layers and available time stamps for any given coordinate (longitude and latitude). This information is given in JSON format. Multiple zoom levels for the weather overlays are available (levels 3-12)
