Accurate precipitation data is essential for various applications, but it often exhibits significant reporting variability due to differences in measurement intervals, techniques, instruments, and reporting conventions. To address this challenge, Synoptic has developed a cutting-edge Precipitation Service that organizes this data into a uniform format, ensuring consistency and comparability. This service streamlines data processing, saving time and effort, and allows customers to access reliable and standardized precipitation data, enabling them to focus on their specific needs and gain valuable insights.
To ensure data reliability, Synoptic conducts real-time Quality Control (QC) on incoming data, identifying implausible values and providing trustworthy insights through the Weather API. This QC process accounts for variances in data collection from different weather sources, addressing issues like sensor failure, poor calibration, and data transmission errors to ensure that the data remains physically plausible and useful for various applications.
Synoptic’s Push Streaming Service offers users a customizable, real-time data feed, reducing the need for repeated requests to the Weather API. It allows users to receive all available observations or to focus on specific stations, locations, or data thresholds, making it a highly efficient tool for accessing real-time data with quality control checks for confident decision-making.
