Baron has launched its new “Baron Weather API for Fleet” website. Baron Weather API for Fleet allows users to integrate weather data into fleet management tracking platforms, transportation management systems for pre-planning and mobile driver applications. It is now optimized for development, the company says.
The new website offers a renovated documentation area with improved organization and faster access, the company says. New and improved use case ideas and descriptions for over 200 meteorological data products, including over 60 Baron exclusives, are also available.
Patented technologies include real-time and forecast road conditions that identify dangerous roads before the delays begin; current road conditions weather to help track conditions experienced by fleet vehicles in real time; and Baron Storm Tracking, which provides storm arrival and location details. Other available data includes forecast precipitation, winds, snowfall and extreme temperatures. This information is continually tracked over the next 60-hour period.
The cloud-powered Baron Weather API scales with customer demand, features a streamlined onboarding process and includes numerous data formats, including JSON and TMS, Baron says. It also features RESTful architecture to ensure a familiar development environment. All data in the Baron Weather API for Fleet is provided in a variety of different formats including ESRI and ArcGIS. Additionally, data packages are fully customized.
