Configuring Weather Preconfigured Source Dataset

In this article

Overview

Fast Data Loader (FDL) offers an API-based, preconfigured dataset that enables you to access comprehensive atmospheric, coastal, oceanic, and geophysical data. You can load this data into a cloud data warehouse (CDW) of your choice. This data is sourced from the NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) that provides public access to archives of comprehensive weather-related data.

Known Issue

Sometimes, the Weather dataset in the source endpoint might throw an error when multiple integrations are running.

Creating Weather Data Integration

FDL fetches the Weather dataset (alerts and forecasts) from the https://www.weather.gov/documentation/services-web-api#. You can load this data from the preconfigured Weather dataset into a CDW of your choice.

  2. Click Weather (as the source).
    The Choose and Connect your destination section is enabled.

  3. In Choose and Connect your destination, select the destination into which you want to load the data. For example, Redshift. See, https://docs-snaplogic.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SD/pages/2006486040 to configure the destination of your choice.

  4. Set up and Verify your integration. See, https://docs-snaplogic.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/SD/pages/2006486040 to set up your integration.

  5. In Name your integration, enter a unique name that will help identify your Weather integration. For example, Weather_Forecasts.
