The Weather Data Challenge Summarized
Having information on what the weather will be like helps us complete daily tasks. It helps in deciding where to go and what to wear for upcoming trips as well as spur-of-the-moment hikes or walks. Weather apps available on the market may lack features you are looking for or provide static, limited data.
Behind the App
ZoomRadar company acknowledged this as a challenge that could be overcome. They aimed at creating a tool that would help both regular users and developers. By facilitating this data attainment in regards to quick weather changes, it would also represent a way to prevent real damages from happening in severe conditions. The solution would require experience in the weather industry and geodata, so ZoomRadar contacted Scopic to further their ideas.
