Getting Started with the AerisWeather Android SDK

The AerisWeather Android SDK is divided into two primary components. Depending on your project's needs, you may only need to use one or both of the weather SDK's components. If you are using the mapping library, the Core library is already included.

Each of the components are outlined below:

  • AerisWeather Core library
  • AerisWeather Map library (includes the Core library)

AerisWeather Core

The AerisWeather Core library provides the standard functionality required for interacting with the AerisWeather API. This library provides access to textual products from the weather API, not graphics or imagery. Review the complete API documentation for more details regarding the various objects and methods available to your project within the AerisWeather Core library and AerisWeather API.

AerisWeather Mapping Platform

The AerisWeather Mapping Platform library provides everything needed to add a fully interactive weather map to your Android project. As of version 2 of the SDK, this also includes the wide array of map layers provided by the AerisWeather Mapping Platform (AMP) (additional subscription needed). In addition to the wide variety of tile weather data layers such as radar, satellite, etc. provided by AMP, there are also point and polygon layers available to further enhance your maps. Review the complete API documentation for more details regarding the public objects and methods available to your project within the AerisWeather Mapping Platform library.
