WHAT SUPPORT DOES FATHYM OFFER?

Fathym offers extensive documentation to guide users through the Habistack API. Customers can also contact support staff who will respond within 24 hours on weekdays.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY API CALL?

An API call is any time you pull content from the API.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY POINT QUERY?

A typical API request is for forecasts of variables at points (in space and time). A point is any geo-location at a specific time in the future; so, for instance, a route can be represented as a series of points. Variables are any available forecast data, such as air temperature, precipitation, wind speed, road temperature, road condition, delay risk and more.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY DATA VARIABLES?

Data Variables are derived using proprietary machine learning algorithms.

WHAT CUSTOM DATA VARIABLES DOES FATHYM CURRENTLY OFFER?

Fathym offers the following custom data variables:

-- Weather Delay Risk: a data variable that calculates the risk of road weather on ETAs.
-- Surface / Road State: a data variable forecasting the conditions on the ground or road.
-- Surface / Road Temperature: a data variable calculating the temperature of the ground or road, rather than the ambient temperature above.

DOES FATHYM HAVE A WAY TO VISUALIZE THE WEATHER DATA?

With a license to the Fathym Low Code Framework, you can access the Fathym Habistack Low-Code Unit and a suite of tools to help you visualize custom solutions.

-- Fathym Forecast Module: a visual interface to determine the weather and surface condition forecast along primary and secondary routes. This module calls the Fathym Habistack Forecast API.

For an example of how you can visualize weather data, please check out https://www.proadject.com/.

That data application was built using Fathym’s low-code framework. Fathym has made some of these resources open source for your use. Check out the GitHub repository at https://github.com/habistack/lcu-fathym-forecast.
