Weather Measures is a promising start-up based in Clermont-Ferrand. Its specialty? Spatialized weather data.
In operation for five years, Weather Measures is now able to provide historical observation data on all meteorological parameters throughout France, as well as forecasts. The strength of this Young Innovative Company (JEI) is that it combines different sources of weather data, supplemented by connected sensors.
While Weather Measures works for major global industrial players in the transport and energy sectors, 80% of its business is with the agricultural sector.
The start-up's aim, thanks to the spatialized data, is to provide the most accurate information possible. In addition, for example, to a rain gauge installed in a field.
DATA AVAILABLE IN OPEN DATA ON API-AGRO
Yield, epidemiology, irrigation and plant growth forecasts: all these important actions require access to meteorological data.
This is why Weather Measures has made available on the API-Agro platform an API (i.e. a computer application programming interface) for weather forecasts on the scale of the French Small Agricultural Regions (SAR). This offer of data proposed in Open Data (free access and free of charge) provides hour-by-hour and day-by-day weather forecasts (nine-day projection).
"The API-Agro platform is our single point of entry to new users of our data," explains Arnault Trac, Development Director at Weather Measures.
The meteorological parameters of this API are: rain, temperature, wind at 2 and 10 meters, humidity, radiation and partial evapotranspiration (ETP). This information is essential for monitoring and planning technical interventions and itineraries in the plots.
