If you need to build weather information into your mobile or web application, look no further. This tutorial, the first of a two-part series, shows you how to create a base application for retrieving and storing latitude/longitude coordinates for world cities from an online service. It uses the Silex PHP micro-framework to build the application, together with MongoDB to store data and jQuery Mobile for the user interface.

Part 2 introduces the new Insights for Weather service from IBM and shows you how host your application on IBM Bluemix®.
