Weather overlays for maps

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, if not, feel free to move it. 

I work for a satellite communications company, we are building a customer facing portal which tracks ship locations amongst other metrics. One significant issue that affects their communication is cloud cover and rain. I'm looking for a solution which will allow us over lay the maps with current and historical weather information. Is there any solution anyone can suggest? We're using Mapbox for the base layer mapping. 

Equally, if anyone from Netweather wants to discuss this on a commercial basis, I'd be happy to talk, feel free to pm me.

MetOffice DataPoint is your best bet. You can definitely get the rainfall radar overlays to add to maps, as I have used them. The API is free: https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/datapoint/product

I'd send them an email about cloud cover, but I suspect they do offer it.

Thanks but that is all UK specific. I should have said it needs to be global, ships move quite a bit! ;)
