OpenWeatherMap is a web service that provides free weather data and forecast API suitable for any cartographic services including web and smartphones applications. Ideology is inspired by OpenStreetMap and Wikipedia that make information free and available for everybody. OpenWeatherMap wide range of weather data - map with current weather, week forecast, precipitation, wind, clouds, data from weather stations, data from radars. Weather data is recieved from global meterological broadcast services and more than 40 000 weather stations.
OpenWeatherMap is startup that offers free current weather data, forecasts and history data to the developers of web-services and mobile applications. As a data source it uses official meteorological broadcast services, raw data from airports weather stations, raw data from radars, and raw data from official weather stations. All data are processed by unique mathematical algorithms that can provide precise online weather forecast data flow and different weather maps like clouds and precipitations. On above of that the service is focused on social aspect by involving owners of weather stations to connect them to the service to let weather data be more accurate.
We are seeking for investments to develop the OpenWeatherMap project in direction of data base increasing, new services development, and math algorithms enforcement.
