Does your company use weather and climate data? Everyone talks about weather, but only the most forward-leaning businesses actually harness Mother Nature to optimize decision-making. Weather Source offers a curated continuum of historical, present, forecast, and climatology weather data that empowers organizations to reduce waste, increase ROI, fine-tune logistics, optimize marketing, and improve resource planning.
In 2019, Pelmorex acquired a majority interest in Weather Source. Weather Source’s B2B expertise, industry-leading data, and product vision are a perfect complement to Pelmorex’s B2C expertise, leadership positions in Canada and Spain, trove of rich data, and talented team. This strategic partnership enables both companies to provide the most comprehensive weather and climate data available worldwide in addition to specialized solutions for any size or type of business.
Unlike other weather data providers who rely on singular weather-sensing inputs that may be too far from your location of interest to prove meaningful, Weather Source takes a markedly different approach to data collection and preparation.
Weather Source’s patent-pending OnPoint Platform curates, decodes, and unifies data from the best weather-sensing technologies available then stages the data on the OnPoint Grid. This globally consistent, 5-kilometre grid covers every landmass in the world and up to 322 kilometres offshore. Each grid point—nearly 2 million in total—represents a “virtual” weather station with a unique OnPoint ID from which weather data can be mapped. This high-resolution method ensures your location of interest is never more than 3.5 kilometres away from an OnPoint ID.
With access to analytics-grade, hyper-local data—right down to your exact storefront, job site, real estate property, agricultural field, or automobile—your business can identify patterns, trends, and anomalies to always be one step ahead of competitors.
