WindBorne API

Welcome to the WindBorne API Reference. These docs are managed by the WindBorne Systems development team.

The Data API provides access to data collected by WindBorne’s constellation of Global Sounding Balloons. The standard measurement set recorded during flight consists of wind speed/direction, barometric pressure, ambient temperature, and relative humidity, along with GPS position and timestamp.

The Forecasts API provides access to WindBorne WeatherMesh, the world’s most accurate (i.e., lowest RMSE) global weather model. WeatherMesh currently predicts surface temperature, pressure, winds, precipitation, and radiation; and then geopotential, temperature, winds, and moisture at 28 pressure levels.

Please note that at this time, data and forecasts are only available to partners and clients.
