Maps API Guide

AccuWeather’s Map APIs provide subscribers access to a weather map overlay service via a simple RESTful web interface. These weather map services do not include maps of any type. Responses are a series of graphics in square tiles for layering on top of existing maps to illustrate past, current, and forecast weather conditions. Therefore these APIs are not stand-alone services but are intended to be paired with a Mercator projection mapping service such as Bing Maps or Google Maps. Tiles are returned one at a time in PNG format. Please see the General Information pages for more.

Please choose from the following options:

Radar: Returns past and current weather map overlay tiles rendered from radar data.

Satellite: Returns past and current weather map overlay tiles rendered from satellite data.

Future Radar: Returns weather map forecast overlay tiles extrapolated from radar data.
