API / XML Feeds

  • Updated 5 years ago
Hi team,

We are planning to buy your API. However, we have certain queries regarding the content flow:

1. What is the frequency of update on the API?
2. Can there be a case where data is not available for a city in the country ?
3. Please share with us the list of cities in India for which you are providing weather info. We have seen that the data for the following cities are not available in the API:
a. Pondicherry
b. Udaipur
c. Varanasi
d. Vijayawada
e Visakhapatnam

Thanks

Right now those are coming up as double cities because we have 2 World Meteorological Organization id's for those cities. We are working on clearing these up.

As for frequency, conditions update anywhere from 2 seconds to 3 hours, and forecasts update approximately every 6 hours.

The only reason we wouldn't have data for a city is if that city is not in our database.

If you want we can share the list of all cities here in India. Request you to please update your database with the list that we'll be sharing so that you can have the weather data for all Indian cities on your website and it becomes easier for us and other organisations to fetch data from your esteemed & reliable web network.

Is it possible to retrieve data for multiple cities? How do I request a limit on updates every 15 minutes?

Only one location per call is supported.

As far as limits on how often you retrieve an update, that wouldn't be a function of our API. You can limit calls by caching data on your end.
