Here’s a look at some of the aviation weather data you can integrate into your flight planning and tracking services, using the Baron Weather API. Many data products are global, providing your customers with comprehensive information while also streamlining development.
All data is quality-assured for accuracy 24/7 by a team of degreed meteorologists. So you know the weather data going into your products and services is the best available.
Situational Awareness with Global Radar
Weather radar data is available for the US (including Alaska and Hawaii), Canada, Australia and Europe. We also take aviation weather radar a step further with exclusive Satellite-Derived Radar, which covers the entire globe, and is most effective for areas where no radar is present—especially the ocean. Forecast modeling coupled with satellite observations ensures an accurate radar simulation that’s available no matter where your customers fly.
Viewing Conditions along a Planned Route
Exclusively available from the Baron Weather API. With the Baron Flight Cross Section, pilots can now bring up a vertical profile of global winds, temps aloft, turbulence (in-cloud and clear air), and icing occurring along any leg of a trip and at any altitude–all without leaving your app or website.
It’s a powerful integrated feature that can be a real differentiator for your products. These data products, and much more, can also be provided as a weather map overlay.
Cloud Cover Imagery, 24 Hours a Day
A daily essential for aviation weather. We use infrared imagery to deliver this product. Since it doesn’t require sunlight to show cloud cover, your customers have continuous 24/7 access to the data.
Global Lightning Strike Data
Cloud-to-ground (global) and cloud-to-cloud (U.S.) data gives your customers an accurate look at threats aloft. A lightning heat map shows the areas of greatest intensity—great for a high-level look at dangerous airspace.
More Global Weather Datasets
The Baron Weather API can also configured to deliver more global weather data products ideally suited to flight tracking and planning. These include:
- METAR and TAF data
- Significant Weather Charts (Mid and High-Level)
- Forecast data
- Volcanic Eruptions
- AIRMETs and SIGMETs
- CIP and SLD Icing (U.S. only)
- Turbulence (U.S. only)
- Plus more
