For developers who would like to superimpose accurate weather conditions on a map, we can help. With support for OpenLayers, Leaflets, MapBox, Google Maps, and Cesium, you can retrieve map tiles (PNG images) at any given moment that you can layer over your existing map interface.

Map Tiles

A grid is composed of 256x256 pixel Map Tiles with (x,y) indices, where (0,0) is the northwest corner of the map. The x parameter increases as the map goes east, and y increases as it goes south. Available zoom levels are 1 - 12. As the zoom level increases, so do the number of tiles. A zoom level of one will give you tiles showing the whole world.
