The power of weather data to explain business performance and predict risk is well established across many industries. However, the quality of the weather data is critical to optimizing the performance of your analytics.

Free data has known flaws in terms of the uptime and management of the weather network and relevance of where the sensors are located.
On the flip side, Earth Networks operates and owns the largest, professionally-managed weather network in the world with over 1,200 lightning sensors and over 12,000 weather sensors located in highly populated areas for analytics that require granular location-based weather intelligence.
The datasets are available in multiple methods via a traditional REST API or via bulk downloads for easy, economical access to historical or ongoing data pulls
