Innovation Retrospective: In 2003, CustomWeather developed the first OpenGIS-based map server for weather data.
MILL VALLEY, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 20, 2020 — CustomWeather reflects upon its numerous accomplishments as it celebrates its 20th year. This month, CustomWeather looks back at its development of the first OpenGIS-based map server for weather data, which changed the way weather data layers are presented and viewed on maps.
CustomWeather worked closely with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) to offer weather layers that were not available elsewhere. The weather map server allowed users to overlay the CustomWeather weather image layers on their own layers or base map using OGC standards. This paved the way for easy manipulation and creation of customized weather maps, and for the first time, using CustomWeather layers, businesses could integrate weather layers using open source standards.
