Comprehensive weather API (custom weather radar, predictive windshear data, hazard data, winds aloft data, native METAR/ATIS API)

Add weather API functions for WASM and JS gauges which can accomplish the
following:

  • Return precipitation data over a defined area, in multiple customizable layers (dependent on severity), so that custom weather radars can be implemented by third party developers
  • Return wind/windshear data over a defined area, so that custom predictive windshear systems can be implemented by third party developers
  • Return turbulence data over a defined area, in multiple customizable layers (dependent on severity - e.g. A320 weather radar displays turbulence in 2 layers: moderate and severe), so that it can be incorporated into custom weather radars
  • Return hazard data over a defined area (returning distinct location(s) of possible lightning and hail) so that it can be incorporated into custom weather radars
  • Create an API which allows for retrieving weather data (especially temperature, pressure, and current winds) at any given waypoint, facility, and/or location (defined by latitude, longitude, and altitude). Winds aloft data such as this is critical for creating a proper VNAV (vertical navigation system) which relies on having this data for proper descent profile predictions as well as cruise/fuel burn predictions
  • Create an API which allows for retrieving the current METAR at any facility, as well as ATIS at any airport that supports it.

Not usually a fan of “bumping” threads, but would love to see this get some
attention or at least a response. Many other aircraft developers (Aerosoft,
PMDG, Fenix) desperately need a weather data solution, as it’s the one thing
they cannot work around as it requires a sim API.

Us too please.

Hello, Exposing weather data through a specific API is in our roadmap for the
upcoming year.

Is there any update regarding whether this will release for HTML/JS gauges
alongside the WASM SimConnect API that has already been confirmed for SU10?
The last few weekly development updates have stated that evaluation is in
progress for determining how to make it available for JavaScript. Considering
the data is bundled with terrain info in a struct, would I be correct in
assuming the only way of providing this to JS would be to expect a Coherent
call, similar to the current method of obtaining traffic data? It would be
greatly appreciated if this WASM and JS API’s could release together, so that
plane developers who rely on HTML/JS won’t be left in the dust and waiting for
SU11+ while others who use WASM (more likely to be payware developers) would
benefit more.

The Terrain and Weather data API is become available only on WASM in SU10.

It’s been almost 1.5 years now since the useless API release with the SU10 and still nothing from Asobo. Not even a response or explanation. It’s still “Under Investigation” in the top of the wishlist…
