The CheckWX API returns aviation weather in JSON and XML formats. The API includes methods for stations, METeorological Aerodrome Reports (METARs), and Terminal Aerodrome Forecasts (TAFs). Developers can implement a station field, station radius, station latitude, and longitude. CheckWX is a tool to help pilots better visualize weather data.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Security, Weather, and Internet of Things. Highlights include the W3C Badging API for enabling users to see new activity about an application on a home screen. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
