GeoMet-Weather provides public access to the Meteorological Service of Canada (MSC) and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) data via interoperable web services and application programming interfaces (API). Through open standards, users can freely and quickly access thousands of real-time and archived weather, climate and water datasets and products and integrate them in their domain-specific applications and decision support systems. Users can build mobile apps, create interactive web maps, and display and animate MSC data in desktop software. MSC GeoMet also enables on demand raw data clipping and reprojection, on demand format conversion and custom visualization.
Eleven APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Location, Messaging, and Music. Featured today is an API for Taylor Swift quotes, an API for forecasting the best time to visit a business, and APIs from the Meteorological Service of Canada.
