This new content will prove particularly valuable in supporting analytics near coasts or in areas with complex topography.
Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 15, 2013
Weather Analytics™ announced today the integration of new content from 32,000 weather stations, gathered from 53 public and private networks, into its enhanced weather collection database.
Weather Analytics is adding the quality-assured data, selected from the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System (MADIS), for integration with the company’s online platform at http://www.WeatherAnalytics.com.
This platform contains more than 33 years of statistically stable history, current conditions and hourly, seven-day forecasts, complete with more than 580 variables − making it the most comprehensive gap-free climate dataset available for business intelligence.
“The addition of the MADIS data will enhance the Meteorological Stations and modeled Weather Analytics Stations™ data already available for purchase on our eCommerce platform,” said Bill Pardue, Chairman and CEO of Weather Analytics.
“This new content will prove particularly valuable in supporting analytics near coasts or in areas with complex topography,” he added. The MADIS data is undergoing the same rigorous cleansing and normalization processes applied to current content sets, Pardue said.
The 32,000 additional stations are available by special order and complement data available on-demand for download via 8,000 official Meteorological Stations and 640,000 modeled Weather Analytics Stations™ − 35km x 35km areas created by fusing the best available data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), official Meteorological Station data, remote sensors and proprietary algorithms.
Established in 2001, the Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingestion System supports the collection, integration, quality control and distribution of thousands of NOAA and other observations. They include surface stations from local, state and federal agencies and select private networks such as universities and research institutions.
