The Foreca Weather Map API provides weather forecasts and observations as map overlays worldwide.
Precipitation radar images, atmospheric weather forecasts, and satellite images are typically shown as map overlays. Foreca provides map overlay images through its Weather Map API. Overlays are primarily provided as tiles that are compatible with the most common map services such as HERE, Google Maps and OpenStreetMap. Foreca's own background maps are also available.
The Weather Map 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).
For more detailed information, please complete the contact us form on the API's homepage, and a Foreca team member will assist you.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
