Accurate Meteorological Data
Ever wonder where meteorologists get their data from? Here’s your chance to see the same information the weather forecasters use for their reports from the source!
Our data comes directly from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Data Buoy Center (NDBC), a part of the National Weather Service (NWS). NDBC provides hourly observations from a network of about 90 buoys and 60 Coastal Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations. C-MAN stations have been installed on lighthouses, at capes and beaches, on near shore islands, and on offshore platforms
NDBC also serves as a data assembly center for receiving, quality controlling, and disseminating measurement data from other stations owned and maintained by non-federal regional ocean observing systems and members of the U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS). Most of the IOOS partners send their reports over the Internet to NDBC systems at the NWS Telecommunications Gateway (NWSTG) in Silver Spring, MD.
Currently, there are over 1200+ stations deployed worldwide.
