Notes and comments

Result Limits

Records/day - Free plans include a limit on the number of Queries Records that can be retrieved in any 24 hour period. Note that A single 15-day forecast query counts as a single Query Result while each history record returned counts as a Query Result. For more information see, What exactly is a weather record

Records/query - The Records/query limit indicates the maximum number of records that may be returned by a single query. If you need more records than is indicated for your plan, you will need to break your query into multiple, smaller queries that fit below your record limit. You can typically break up a large query by breaking the time range into smaller chunks or by breaking up your list of locations.

Locations/query – The Locations/query limit indicates the maximum number of locations that you may request in a single query. If you need weather data for additional locations, you can break your query into multiple each requesting a subset of your location list. Alternately, an upgraded plan will make querying more convenient and efficient by allowing one query to retrieve data for many locations using a single request and returning a unified dataset for all.

Bulk Datasets

Locations/dataset - The number of locations allowed in a single bulk dataset. Bulk datasets can include multiple locations across multiple days or hours and are perfect for populating data lakes or databases.

Records/dataset - The maximum record size of the dataset for all locations. The record size of the result is the number of records per location multipled by the number of locations.

Dataset scheduling – Dataset scheduling provides the ability to have our system run your dataset query during the same hour of every day. This allows you to easily connect your spreadsheet, database or business application to a dataset.

Direct Data Users

Direct Data Users are users who are allowed to access either the Visual Crossing Weather API or the online query page or are permitted use raw weather data directly as retrieved from the API or query page.

History Summary Reports

History summaries are powerful weather queries where the weather engine calculates a single result that summarizes many historical data records. For example, this type of query could be used to calculate the climate change for a given location by aggregating individual weather observations across multiple decades. For more information, see our documentation.
