Simple Data Pipe connector for

This connector generates training, test and blind data for the flight predictor spark MLLib application. It uses the flightstats API to fetch flight departure information for selected US airports, combines it with local weather data and stores the data sets using the Simple Data Pipe SDK in Cloudant.

Need to load data from other sources? Check out the connector repository.



To load data you have to have a developer account. A 30 day trial is available for evaluation purposes.

Deploy the Simple Data Pipe

Deploy the Simple Data Pipe in Bluemix using the Deploy to Bluemix button or manually.


This connector requires the Weather Company Data service in IBM Bluemix to be bound to the Simple Data Pipe application.

Provision and bind an Weather Company Data service instance using the Bluemix web console (Show me how) or run the following Cloud Foundry commands (Show me how):

  $ cf create-service weatherinsights Free weather
  $ cf bind-service simple-data-pipe weather
  $ cf restage simple-data-pipe

Pro Tip: If you want to re-use an existing instance that is not named weather, create a USER-DEFINED Environment Variable in the Simple Data Pipe application named WEATHER and set its value to the name of the existing Weather Company Data service. (Show me how - Bluemix) (Show me how - Cloud Foundry client)
