Getting Started with the Aeris Android SDK

The Aeris 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:

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

Aeris Core

The Aeris Core library provides the standard functionality required for interacting with the Aeris 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 Aeris Core library and Aeris API.

Aeris Map

The AerisWeather Map 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 Aeris Map 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 Aeris Map library.
