This endpoint will allow you to query for weather events (from any of the data layers in your current plan) by specifying:
location- GeoJSON of a Point, LineString, or Polygon up to 10 Million square KM (limited to Severe Weather Events).
triggers- pre-defined categories like "fires" or custom Insight rules
buffer- KM around location, such that the response includes all values on observations or predictions.
Note that an Insight triggers can only be coupled with a Location that is currently monitored by an Alert.
An event object has the following attributes, in accordance with Common Alerting Protocols like the OASIS standard:
|The conditions that started the subject event - either an |
|The expected time of the beginning of the subject event|
|The expected time of the end of the subject event|
|The updated time of the subject event|
|The code denoting the intensity of impact|
|The code denoting the confidence in the observation or prediction|
|The code denoting the time available to prepare|
|In addition to the common values listed below, certain event types may have distinct values - as described under the relevant Severe Weather section.|
