Greetings Smart Weather Developers. We’ve just published a revised Smart Weather API Remote Data Access Policy (REST & WS). Please have a look and let us know if you have any questions. For the TLDR crowd, here’s the short version:
- Anyone can access public metadata (name, location, etc.) from any public station.
- Station owners can access observation data (weather data) from the station(s) they own.
- Normal applications (which is most) will have generous volume and rate limits
- Extended volume limits and data access permissions are available by contracted agreement
This policy is not implemented on the technical side, yet. We will be rolling out new developer tools and documentation soon. Existing applications will not be affected any time soon.
