You can experience our weather forecasts and apply them to your unique use-cases in a number of different ways. Determining which weather insights you need depends on your desired business outcomes and what information you want to prioritize. Keep reading to find out how you can start working with our weather forecasts today to improve your decision-making tomorrow.
Weather disrupts 70% of businesses worldwide and costs more than $600 billion each year in the U.S. alone.
Climate change has a big impact on global business operations. Spire Weather addresses these challenges and provides data and forecasts to help reduce operational risks and transform weather variability into a competitive advantage.
Spire Weather’s constellation of satellites creates a unique global observation dataset and delivers incredible accuracy, previously only available in local and well-developed regions, to the entire planet.
Spire leverages Radio Occultation technology and assimilates atmospheric density information into its own weather model runs, providing more valuable forecast and a greater accuracy.
A complete weather observation dataset is the starting point of any weather forecast. Spire is currently collecting 3x more radio occultation data than any other commercial entity on the planet, and this number is increasing with our frequent satellite launches continuously improving the quality of our weather forecasts.
Spire forecasts are delivered by an intelligent and easy-to-use API that can be quickly integrated into your own products and services. In addition, our team of specialists are available to help you have a great experience and extract the most value out of our product.
Hourly forecast output 4 times a day up to 7 days.
50+ high precision weather variables available anywhere on the planet in 1/8th-degree resolution (aprox. 12km).
Integrate advanced weather forecasts, available in JSON or GRIB2 formats, directly into analytics platforms quickly and easily.
The greatest risk to safety and fuel emissions is extreme weather. Having access to reliable, easy-to-use weather forecasting is paramount to the wellbeing of all seafaring vessels. Spire Weather helps to :
As each season shows an increasing amount of extreme weather events and each region faces unique weather related difficulties, the decision-making process has become more and more complex for farmers.
With a constant focus to protect passenger safety and improve fuel efficiency, it is more important than ever to have access to global weather forecast data. Aviation forecasters must also consider clear air turbulence, icing and winds aloft data to support scheduled flight operation for safety and efficiency.
Spire satellites collect radio signals sent by GPS/GNSS satellites on the other side of the planet.
As these signals pass through the atmosphere, they are refracted.
By analyzing the refraction, Spire is able to understand the atmosphere from the ground up to 120 km.
Radio occultations provide an unbiased very accurate measurement of the atmospheric conditions without variations over time.
Unlike weather balloons that only collect data twice per day from specific sites, Spire satellites scan the entire planet 24/7 including remote regions like the oceans and the poles.
Local weather is not an isolated phenomenon – this vertical (up to 120 km) and horizontal scanning creates a unique understanding of the global weather evolution.
Spire has the unique ability to assimilate the collected atmospheric data into a state of the art weather model.
Oldendorff was able to improve their fuel consumption simulation model and calculate paths that consumed the least amount of fuel with Spire Weather
Oldendorff, one of the world’s largest dry bulk shipping companies, which ships and trans-ships over 300 million tons of bulk cargo every year used Spire Weather to improve the accuracy of their fuel consumption model.
By adding Spire Weather to their simulation model, Oldendorff was able to improve their fuel consumption simulation model and calculate paths that consumed the least amount of fuel. Innovation and the importance of data analytics are at the heart of Oldendorff’s strategy, making them one of the most data-driven companies in the maritime industry.
Reduce fuel costs and CO2 emissions by integrating weather insights into a fuel consumption model in order to:
Oldendorff created a model considering origin, destination, voyage constraints, and navigation conditions to generate a list of possible routes.
Next they forecasted future weather conditions, adding a new layer of information to evaluate potential efficiencies (ie, currents and waves) and risks of taking each path.
Vessels respond differently to weather and ocean conditions. Creating a digital twin simulates fuel consumption according to vessel characteristics and route conditions.
Using Spire Weather, Oldendorff were able to drive 2.5% more accuracy to their fuel consumption model which is equivalent to a prediction 5.61 times closer in terms of fuel consumption over a seven-day period. This translates to:
A complete weather observation dataset is the starting point of any weather forecast. Spire is currently collecting 3x more radio occultation data than any other commercial entity on the planet. Our unrivaled radio occultation technology powers Spire’s weather models and sets a new benchmark for weather forecasts.
“The maritime industry still underestimates the value that good (weather) data can bring to their business.”
