Yuktix Technologies initiated the Bangalore Weather Open Project in 2014 for measuring and tracking the micro-climate in Bangalore and set up India’s first citizen-run network of weather stations in the city of Bangalore. Currently it consists of a network of 12 weather stations each collecting critical information from various Bangalore localities such as temperature, humidity, rain and in some cases other variables like wind speed.
The real time data collected by IMD is not open for public access and hence the citizens and climate researchers cannot make use of the weather data. The Open weather Network thus enables the citizens and climate researchers by giving them open access to weather and micro-climate data. Currently, the network only has nodes across Bangalore, but we urge corporations, societies and government organizations to join the cause and increase the density of the Weather Network.
The weather data from all these stations can be accessed at www.yuktix.com/m/aws. We also provide our Weather data APIs to Weather Underground. If you are executing any climate or weather oriented research, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have also developed the Yuktix android app to access the the micro-climate weather developments across Bangalore.
