Improved reliability and batch querying by buildings

Updated over a week ago

On March 15, 2023, Verdigris migrated from DarkSky Weather API to the Apple WeatherKit as our backend weather data service provider for the Weather API. After the migration, we found reliability issues related to Apple’s request traffic handling. We also discovered an error in the time zone logic where users querying weather data for a building in a different time zone than their own have received response data attributed to the incorrect time zone.

As of our now, we:

  • Improved our retry logic and testing capabilities to improve successful query response rates

  • Fixed the time zone issue

  • Added capabilities to query multiple buildings in a single batch

💡 Pro Tip: If additional interval granularity is desired, query interval = 1m or interval = 15m. However, please note that the data for final hour returns null due to current interpolation settings; adding an extra hour to the end_time resolves this issue.

For example, query end_time = 2023-03-14T0**1**:00:00Z instead of end_time = 2023-03-14T0**0**:00:00Z to receive a successful response for the timestamp timestamp = 2023-03-14T00:00:00Z for both 1m and 15m query parameters.
