Radar API — Overview

The Radar API allows you to show weather anywhere on the globe.

For example:

https://goweatherradar.com/widget/YOUR_API_KEY?lat=25.031&lng=105.852&overlay=temp&metricTemp=c&zoom=5

That mean to show: latitude=25.031, longitude=105.852, layer=Temperature, Temperature unit=°C, layer_unit=°C, zoom=5

https://goweatherradar.com/widget/YOUR_API_KEY?lat=25.031&lng=105.852&overlay=rain&metricTemp=c&metricRain=mm&zoom=5

That mean to show: latitude=25.031, longitude=105.852, layer=Rain, Temperature unit=°C, Rain unit=mm, zoom=5
