Better manage, visualize, and contextualize nearby storms How do you predict the behavior of something as unpredictable as a thunderstorm? It’s one of the great quandaries faced by safety management professionals in both the public and private sectors. Be too cautious, and you can cause costly service disruption and downtime. Miscalculate the other way, and people can get hurt. Vaisala Lightning Threat Zone API boosts the thunderstorm nowcasting and alert information that software developers can easily leverage within their situational awareness platforms. This yields localized, actionable insights for their end users in times when people’s safety depends on their decisions.
