Our services are reasonably priced based on the customer use case, the service usage volume and amount of customisation work required. We would be happy to offer you our pricing quote after we have specified together your requirements for the service. Our value proposition is to always deliver a weather service that is a perfect fit for the customer need. To be able to focus on major customer projects currently we are not offering freemium services or short term project deliveries.
The Weather Feed is based on customers using HTTP polling to monitor forecast and observation files, which update at different intervals. Location metadata, such as coordinates and names in various languages, is provided in a separate static file. The files are either XML or delimited ASCII raw data, which is language-independent. We recommend that larger batch files be gzipped delimited ASCII, since typically, delimited ASCII files are faster and easier to parse, and gzip compression greatly reduces transfer times. For convenience (intended for smaller files), we can also provide the data as uncompressed XML or RSS. Foreca reserves the option to limit traffic to only predefined IP addresses.
