HERE, the location data and technology platform, announced that CustomWeather has joined the HERE Marketplace, providing software developers seamless access to robust sets of weather and climate data.

Weather conditions and environmental data are increasingly used by automakers, in transportation and logistics, and across supply chains to improve operations, driver safety and end-customer satisfaction.

The HERE platform’s Marketplace offers secure data exchange, essential location data and technology and a rich ecosystem of partners. With CustomWeather data multiple industries can develop business-enhancing solutions on the HERE platform, including:

• Transport & Logistics: Fleet managers can plan and respond when high winds threaten to overturn vehicles or severe weather impacts driving conditions. Solar radiation data delivers insights on road temperatures and tire wear. Severe weather alerts, storm cell tracking, and real-time weather monitoring enable efficient route planning and delivery.

• Energy, Renewables and Utilities: Utility planning, site placement and capacity management are aided by historical weather data analysis. Severe weather alerts, lightning strike data, and storm cell tracking enable emergency response and preparation.

• Insurance: Historical weather and climate data aid in modeling short- and long-term risk. CustomWeather provides comprehensive flood forecasting and analysis to insurance companies worldwide. Accurate post-event weather data supports claim management and verification.

• Transportation: Precision forecasting, weather alerts, storm cell tracking and Doppler radar can be ingested by vehicle advanced drivers assistance systems (ADAS) via the HERE Platform. Extreme temperatures and humidity impact EV battery life, making temperature forecasts an important component of range limits and anticipated recharging stops.
