Weather industry leader Weather Decision Technologies, Inc. (WDT) has announced the release of SkyWise, a Weather as a Service® platform which provides access to an enormous amount of weather data and analytics never before available outside the company.


SkyWise empowers web, mobile, GIS, Software as a Service (SaaS), and Common Operating Picture developers with the ability to tap into a large catalog of weather analytics and information to integrate within their products. Through a combination of cloud-based APIs, SDKs, ESRI Web Services, and gridded and point data sets, developers can incorporate past, present, and future weather information and analytics into their projects. This includes global weather intelligence including radar, satellite, current conditions, forecast models, lightning, hail, tornadoes, ocean data and more.

Additionally, we have established and licensed a large suite of proprietary weather algorithms, forecast models, and analytics engines that yield high-end weather content. This combination has allowed us to amass an unrivaled amount of high quality global weather information,” says Renny Vandewege, SkyWise Product Manager at WDT. “By making this data available to developers via SkyWise, we can reach and empower many, many more individuals and businesses.”
