About Athenium Analytics

The Athenium Analytics datasets allow access to global historical, current, and forecast weather data.

The appetite for precision data for decision and operations support is growing exponentially and affecting industries ranging from insurance to agriculture to risk management. However, the availability of weather and climate data has not significantly changed for decades. Athenium Analytics helps to solve this challenge as the leading precise and reliable source for a comprehensive global database of weather, climate, geography and ecosystem information that can be easily fused with other datasets.

Why Our Data?

Athenium Analytics has produced a proprietary database built from multiple public and private sources containing comprehensive global historic and forecast data. We cleanse, normalize, and interpolate the most advanced datasets to provide an exceptional database with resolutions ranging from 35km to less than 1km in many locations.

The Data

Our databases are quality checked, translated, converted, and normalized to provide hourly, gap-free, statistically stable data made accessible for analytics and solutions. Our historic data is assimilated from multiple state-of-the-industry sources, including the Climate Forecast System Reanalysis and METAR and MADIS feeds. Hourly seven-day forecasts are based on the industry’s best forecast models, including the Global Forecast System (GFS), interpolated hourly. We also leverage a number of NOAA numerical model analyses and forecasts, as well as our own proprietary modeling, for both historical and forecast data. Our capability to ingest raw data in any format from any source, then prepare the data in useful formats, is what sets us apart from any other data providers.


We also incorporate different datasets to dynamically downscale data to a high spatial resolution, as well as add in datasets for topographical, agricultural, and other environmental datasets to provide high precision for hundcores of weather variables. Our capability to pull in sources (to ingest raw data in any format, and from any source) and prepare the data in useful formats with analytics, formatting, and statistical approaches to validate gap-free data sets us apart from other data providers.

Data Contained in this Dataset

Column Type Description
_seq uint Internal sequence number used to keep data rows in order
timestamp string Timestamp of the Data - America/New York Time.
muts uint64 Microseconds Unix Timestamp. An integer representation of a timestamp with microsecond precision that can be compared directly to other timestamps. (underlying field is nc_publish_date_actual)
symbol string Trading Symbol or Ticker
day int64 Day 1-31
month int64 Month 1-12
year int64 Year ie 2022
growingDegreeDay double Growing Degree Day
coolingDegreeDay double Cooling Degree Day - EIA Description - Cooling degree days (CDD) are a measure of how hot the temperature was on a given day or during a period of days. A day with a mean temperature of 80°F has 15 CDD. If the next day has a mean temperature of 83°F, it has 18 CDD. The total CDD for the two days is 33 CDD.
heatingDegreeDay double Heating Degree Day - EIA Description - Heating degree days (HDD) are a measure of how cold the temperature was on a given day or during a period of days. For example, a day with a mean temperature of 40°F has 25 HDD. Two such cold days in a row have a total of 50 HDD for the two-day period.
killingDegreeDay double Killing Degree Day
site string Site/Location Information
geo string Geo Location - Latitude/Longitude pair (ie 55.7521,37.6175)
