A Europe-based logistic company wanted to add a feature to their website where visitors could access weather data in the form of a report. The client had predefined parameters, such as temperature, wind, precipitation, solar, and cloud cover, that were to be followed to showcase the real time weather insights. Additionally, this weather report should have the option to display the details for multiple locations.
The Zehntech team used Tableau to create a data dashboard that met the client’s requirements. We developed a Web Data Connector (WDC) to fetch real time data from the weather forecast official website i.e. Open-meteo.com. The WDC file was hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to create a connection link that would fetch real-time data and pass it to the Tableau dashboard continuously.
Client wanted to build a weather insights report to showcase on their website. The client intended to retrieve data from the official weather forecast organization I.e. open-meteo.com, which provides an open-source weather data API.
Another challenge client faced was that the Open Meteo API does not provide real-time data. This meant that they had to manually fetch the real-time data from the website, which was a time-consuming and error-prone process. To overcome this challenge, the client has approached the Zehntech team, who can help them to fetch the real-time data and populate it in a Tableau dashboard.
Zehntech designed a Tableau dashboard that enables users to easily extract real time weather insights and make informed decisions. The dashboard presents the data in a tabular format that is easy to read and analyze, and users can interact with the data by applying filters.
The integration of the official weather website’s API has significantly enhanced data accessibility. The client can now easily retrieve weather forecast data without the need for manual data collection or processing. The client was happy with this implementation, and website visitors have given positive feedback.
