The WeatherLink v2 API can be used to access weather station metadata and weather observation data for WeatherLink.com connected weather stations that you have access to.
In order to access a station via the WeatherLink v2 API the station must meet one of the following criteria:
- You own the station under your WeatherLink account.
- You don’t own the station but it was shared to your WeatherLink account. If the station was shared as a Basic level share then the share must have been made by the station owner.
- You don’t own the station but it is a publicly visible station on WeatherLink.com and you purchased a Pro or Pro+ upgrade and applied it to that station to give yourself increased access to the station’s data.
The WeatherLink v2 API supports all types of Davis Instruments weather stations that upload data to WeatherLink.com.
The older WeatherLink v1 API that supports only data uploaded from Vantage Connect, WeatherLinkIP, and WeatherLink Network Annual Subscription connected stations will continue to function and support these older device types.
Please be aware that the WeatherLink v2 API is not a one-to-one correlation with the v1 API. The focus of the v2 API is on the raw data from the weather station as it is reported to the WeatherLink.com service. The v1 API was more focused on mixing different kinds of data together to form a report.
