Historical tide lookup

  • Updated 4 years ago
Is there a way to do historical lookups of tide data?

I tried this:

http://api.wunderground.com/api/{api_...

Which I expected to return me a historical summary of the tides for that day. However, it appears to return a summary of weather observations along with the *current* tide readings.

For context, I'm building a personal app for tracking surf sessions. Thus, I'm interested in being able to query for wind/tide data at specified time/place.

Any input is appreciated!

The call is just being made incorrectly
http://api.wunderground.com/api/api_key/history_20120415/tide/q/37.75274385289523,-122.5103956...
should be
http://api.wunderground.com/api/api_key/tide_20120415/q/37.75274385289523,-122.5103956...

History is a separate feature.

Hey Tim,

Are there docs related to this API call specifically for the history? Been looking on the documentation on the spec but am not able to find anything.

Hey Tim,

Good news and thank you for responding. Can you please provide a link to the documents? I'm have a problem communicating the proper calls to my programers.

Thanks,

Brad

This is an undocumented feature. It is not officially supported at this time.
