Azure Maps Weather services (https://aka.ms/iotshow/AzureMapsWeatherService) add a new layer of real-time, location-aware information to Azure Maps portfolio of native Azure geospatial services.

Bringing Weather Services to Azure Maps means IoT developers have a simple means of integrating highly dynamic, real-time, historic and forecasted weather data and visualizations into their applications through their existing Azure subscriptions.

The Weather Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Accuweather. Weather is a critical factor for many scenarios—whether it’s to ensure the safety of mobile assets, model and forecast need for renewable energy, or predict risk and assess claims in the insurance industry.

Outi demonstrates how a few of these APIs can be used to enhance data visualizations with radar and infrared map overlays with an Azure Maps Web SDK, and how call APIs to make weather-based decisions with current and forecast based weather, as well as weather along route.

Azure Maps Mobility Services make the life of an IoT developer easier and they contribute towards a great end user experience.

Watch this episode to see Outi Nyman, Senior Program Manager, Azure Maps, step through the APIs for these services.

Designed to support developers creating smart city applications that move people and things from one place to another, they help create applications that decrease traffic congestion and increase air quality.

The Mobility Service APIs for Azure Maps are brought to life in partnership with Moovit, Inc. Moovit combines information from public transit operators and authorities with live information from its user community to offer a real-time picture of public transit services, including stops, route information, and travel time estimations.
