Baron launches API Website for fleet operations

Baron announced the launch of the Baron Weather API for Fleet website, now optimized for development. Baron Weather API for Fleet makes it easy to integrate quality-controlled weather data into fleet management tracking platforms, transportation management systems for pre-planning, and mobile driver applications.

The Baron Weather API for Fleet website offers customers an intuitive and customizable user experience, including a renovated documentation area with improved organization and faster access. With more customer dashboard features and convenient key display, customers can leverage Baron Weather API using any coding language, whether to track current conditions, view forecast conditions, or access historical data. Plus, new and improved use case ideas and descriptions for over 200 meteorological data products, including over 60 Baron exclusives, empower customers to develop creative solutions for their application.

Global weather and Baron exclusive data power the products with real differentiators, helping keep customers and assets safe. With accurate weather data, fleet customers can plan routes ahead of time to avoid inclement weather, get better situational awareness around storms, and reduce weather-related accidents.

Patented technologies include real-time and forecast road conditions that identify dangerous roads before the delays begin; current road conditions weather to help track conditions experienced by fleet vehicles in real time; and Baron Storm Tracking, which provides storm arrival and location details. Other available data features include forecast precipitation, winds, snowfall, and extreme temperatures. This information is continually tracked over the next 60-hour period to show the potential impact on fleet operations and enable customers to plan before disruptions begin.

The cloud-powered Baron Weather API scales with customer demand to deliver secure and reliable data. For efficient integration into any application or GIS platform, Baron Weather API features a streamlined on-boarding process and includes numerous data formats, including JSON and TMS. It also features RESTful architecture to ensure a familiar development environment. All data in the Baron Weather API for Fleet is provided in a variety of different formats including ESRI and ArcGIS with the developer able to determine how to present the information. Additionally, data packages are fully customized, making integration easy and quick.
