|Known Uses of Data||We designed the viewer to encourage community use. Whether you’re a meteorologist, emergency manager, data provider, hobbyist, or student working on a class project, the Data Viewer gives you the keys to generate custom views so you can learn about local weather, monitor your data assets, or make informed decisions based on the data at hand. Filter data to specific networks or areas of interest for situational awareness, use visual QC flags to identify stations that may need servicing, or quickly traverse to past moments in time to place current conditions in the context of historical events. And it’s mobile friendly!|

|Preparation Method||The surface station data available in this application are made available from hundreds of providers including personal weather station owners, research and industry organizations, and local, state, federal, and international government entities. Synoptic Data PBC aggregates data from these sources and makes it available in real time. Because of this aggregation, the details of the data vary from network to network and station to station. Measurement and transmission frequency, variables reported, and more, are established by the providers based on their specific needs. Precipitation data has been derived by Synoptic from the more than 20 different raw reporting formats in our aggregated data stream.|
|Data Publishing Method||Webmap. The display of surface observations in this application is powered by Synoptic's Mesonet API. It is freely available to all users for non-commercial use.|
