The Storm Glass API gives developers access to global marine weather data from multiple sources using a single REST API.
The API returns marine weather forecasts for the next 7 days in hourly resolution. Forecasts include swell height, swell direction, swell period, wave height, wave direction, wave period, wind speed, wind direction, and air temperature.
In recent years, weather has become more extreme. Luckily meteorology and weather data retrieval tools are improving every day. Developers looking to build applications for weather can check out these popular APIs that are listed in the Weather category on ProgrammableWeb to suit their needs.
We recently covered a competition that asks developers to create tools that will aid in natural disaster preparedness and relief. In light of this, and with Hurricane Florence fast approaching the Carolinas, we wanted to make sure Developers could find the tools they need to build life saving apps.
Sixteen APIs have been added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Games, Digital Asset Management, and Marine. Featured today are APIs for programmatic access to energy data provided by the U.S. Department of Energy. Here's a rundown of the latest additions.
