I used the Forecast.io API to automatically generate a wind rose of anywhere in the world with one click! This will come in handy when I need to estimate pesticide exposures and exposure to traffic-related air pollution. Thanks Forecast for the free 1000 API calls per day - super generous! The overlay shows average wind speed.
We can use APIs like this to help us understand how wind speed and direction impact your health. My research shows how this data lets us research weather patterns and asthma inhaler use.
