Weather Source: OnPoint Weather – Retail Ready
Retail Ready pre-packaged weather solution
OnPoint Weather – Retail Ready
Weather Source data, products, and solutions were built for analytics and machine learning. Since 2015, Weather Source data empowers retailers to quantify the impact of weather on product sales, footfall traffic, seasonal productions, marketing, supply chain, marketing, improved resource planning, and more. Seamlessly integrate weather and climate data with your internal transactional data for insightful analytics and actionable business intelligence.
Unlike other weather data providers who rely exclusively on singular inputs and then use simple interpolation methods to extend the weather information to your location of interest, Weather Source approaches its weather and climate data in a much different way. Weather Source’s patent-pending OnPoint Platform curates, decodes, and unifies data from the best weather sensing technologies available then stages the data on our OnPoint Grid. This globally consistent, 5-kilometer grid covers every land mass in the world and up to 200 miles 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 2.2 miles away from an OnPoint ID.
Weather Source has designed a Retail Ready pre-packaged weather solution that include the following weather data:
