Overview:

aWhere, Inc., a Software as a Service (SAAS) business focused providing location intelligence for global development, has produced a platform offering key weather data for use in global agricultural development and climate related initiatives.

The platform, aWhere Weather, offers free access to historical, daily-observed and 8 days of daily forecasted ‘localized’ weather data for locations in South Asia; West, East and Southern Africa; Cental America; and Mexico. aWhere collects weather data from meteorological stations around the world and interpolates it into 9km grid cells- it’s like having a complete meteorological station every 9km. Within each grid cell, weather data is available for the following variables:

  • Precipitation
  • Min/Max Temperature
  • Min/ Max Relative Humidity
  • Solar Radiation
  • Mean/Max Wind Speed
  • Growing Degree Days

In addition to online access, users can sign up to receive daily or weekly emailed Weather Reports for their locations of interest.
