Overview

This endpoint will allow you to query for weather events (from any of the data layers in your current plan) by specifying the location (GeoJSON of a Point, LineString or Polygon), 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.
