Dutch Explanation of the Api and Source

(1.0) Neerslagdata op basis van coördinaten

Op basis van de door u gewenste coördinaten (latitude en longitude) kunt u de neerslag tot twee uur vooruit ophalen in tekstvorm. De data wordt iedere 5 minuten geüpdatet. Op deze pagina kunt u de neerslag in tekst vinden. De waarde 0 geeft geen neerslag aan (droog), de waarde 255 geeft zware neerslag aan. Gebruik de volgende formule voor het omrekenen naar de neerslagintensiteit in de eenheid millimeter per uur (mm/u):

Neerslagintensiteit = 10^((waarde-109)/32)

Ter controle: een waarde van 77 is gelijk aan een neerslagintensiteit van 0,1 mm/u.
