amCharts Weather Map

Version: 1.0.5


amCharts Weather Map is a JavaScript library that helps your create beautiful, dynamically-updated, searchable maps and charts with all kinds of weather-related information


Before you start, ensure you have your own OpenWeather API-Key to be able to retrieve the weather data.

Quick and Dirty

You just want to give it a quick try and check it's capabilities, follow these few points.

Using under SSL

If you are going to run this tool under SSL-encoded URL, you'll need to update the OpenWeather API endpoint in your OPENWEATHER_APIKEY.js. The default one is as follows:


To use the SSL-enabled endpoint, update it to:


Please note, that SSL connection is not available with their free and Starup subscription plans. You'll need at least Developer subscription.


You did it quick and dirty and now you feel to mess around with it? Here we go, this is your new route.

How to build

We use gruntjs to do all the magic behind the scenes. It minifies and combines several files together to lower the payload of the web-app.

  • Install NPM and node.js
  • Install Bower
  • Goto / of this web-app in your terminal
  • Run following command to install all node dependencies
> npm install -D
  • Run following command to install all bower dependencies
> bower install
  • Run grunt to create your own build
> grunt
  • Copy /build, place it anywhere you want and voilá.


Important thing to know is this: amCharts Weather Map is not a product. It's rather a showcase of what can be done with amCharts products. While we'll do our best to answer your queries in GitHub issue tracker, we won't be able to extend full-fledged amCharts support service to this tool.
