I have the the NEXRAD radar REST service and it works nicely. Does anybody happen to know of a current temperature map service?
Looks like OpenWeatherMap is the way to go.
You can always digest one of the following KML based options located here: NWS KML Weather Data
Thanks! I'll give that a try.
I added a current temperature KMZ from NWS KML Weather Data. It appears in my map by temps are not symbolized, just show up as gray squares. I click on them and the info appears in a nice popup. I just don't see the temps in the map.
Here is what I did. Temp numbers appear symbolized when you open this in Google Earth, would really love to see them on my map.
var kmlUrl = "http://www.srh.noaa.gov/gis/kml/metar/tf.kmz";
var kml = new KMLLayer(kmlUrl);
Thanks for any help you can provide.
This can be one of the problems when using KMLs. I've looked at the KMZ in Google Earth and I can't really tell what the map symbol is (an actual label or symbol). Anyways, despite what ESRI claims, the display of KMLs/KMZs isn't as good as in Google Earth native. Symbology can be one of those limiting factors.
It's a lot of additional work but since you can access the features inside a KML, you could create a feature collection based on the features in the KML layer and then create a new feature layer using a renderer that symbolizes the points the way you want them to be. Unfortunately, I don't have an example of this.
The NWS also has some of its information available in WMS format but I have ZERO experience trying to work with it (and it doesn't look straightforward either).
OK, thanks. Looks like they discontinued that. See http://graphical.weather.gov/xml/OGC_services/. I basically just want a way to show current temps at locations of weather stations. OpenweatherMap has a nice Temp MapTile Service. They have a great way to bring in an array of current weather stations with nice icons and popups, but they have been having server issues. Supposed to be fixed soon. Just thinking there must be some other way to bring in current temps as points on a map. The KMZ is close but I just need a way to get some kinf of point symbol to appear. I'll see what I can do.
Thanks so much for your help, much appreciated.
