Fueling Healthcare Research with Weather Data

Advances in machine learning and patient-specific real-time data are leading to discoveries and correlations never before thought possible with human analysis. Physicians can now study the complex correlations between patient health issues and a nearly infinite list of environmental data that cause or exacerbate a patient’s condition. With these correlations identified, physicians and patients alike have the opportunity to forecast external triggers and mitigate the effects before they present themselves. With increasing frequency, researchers are turning to hyper-localized environmental condition datasets to tell the story of external impacts.  In addition to traditional weather conditions such as temperature, wind and barometric...

A Revolution in Car Rental: Maximizing Revenue & Yield with Weather Data

Have you ever shown up to a car rental counter only to find the lights off and a sign stating “no cars available”? The chances are good considering that revenue management for car rental companies has been referenced as being more difficult than nuclear physics.  A $100 billion global industry with a >20% no-show rate, rental car companies are beginning to utilize artificial intelligence to minimize oversell situations and maximize revenue on rapidly depreciating assets. An existing (and oversimplified) view of factors considered by mainstream rental agencies in vehicle pricing, positioning, and segmenting. External Pressures Fuel Industry Challenges From rideshare...

Maximize Solar Energy Production with Weather Data

Across the globe, solar energy installations have taken off in the past decade – both at the home and utility-scale levels. Current statistics show that photovoltaic production has reached over 1% of all global energy and is projected to grow exponentially, with China leading the pack in terms of installed capacity. The rest of the world is not far behind though with the United States, German and Japan in hot pursuit. While it’s typically touted as a renewable, environmentally-friendly resource, solar energy is also becoming increasingly cost-effective as an alternative to traditional energy sources and, is improving in reliability annually....

Using the JavaScript SDK to Display Static Weather Maps

We recently published a blog detailing how users can fetch data from the API using the new JavaScript SDK. This time we’ll spend a few minutes diving into the SDK’s static weather maps using the Aeris Mapping Platform (AMP). Setup We’re going to assume you’re using front-end JavaScript in an HTML document for this example. Prior to adding static weather maps to our page, we will need a get a few items setup. First, we’ll need to include the library like so: [crayon-5d86621aa295e030245340/] This can be added in the header or the body. Next, let’s instantiate the library and make sure...

How Crack Network Operations Teams Are Learning to Preempt Weather-Related Issues

In today’s digital environment, even short periods of network downtime can result in frustrated employees, angry customers, and the loss of millions in revenue. That elevation in business risk has pushed today’s network operations professionals into the spotlight – one where the temperature is hot and there’s little room for error or delays. With advancements in computing and machine learning, reductions in network downtime have been achieved by preemptively identifying and addressing issues before they manifest into habitual pain points. Historically, teams have leveraged internal sources of data to power these insights. Unfortunately, those efforts have limitations in the incredibly...
