Frequently asked questions

What can I access as part of the trial?

As part of the 90-day trial, you can explore the benefits and features of IBM Environmental Intelligence geospatial datasets and APIs. Organizations in both the public and private sectors face growing vulnerability to climate-related operational challenges, asset damage and supply chain disruptions. IBM Environmental Intelligence empowers organizations with curated geospatial data, fine-tuned models and AI-driven insights to address these challenges.

These include:  

  • Geospatial datasets: Extract data at flexible spatial and temporal resolutions by using public or commercial datasets to analyze wildfire risk, surface imagery, land elevation and atmospheric reflections.

  • History-on-demand APIs: Gain historical weather context with APIs that provide gridded currents, agriculture, energy and summarized forecast data to predict future business outcomes. 

  • Carbon performance engine: Use the carbon performance engine's GHG emissions APIs to calculate internal and supply chain emissions, which provides a comprehensive view of your carbon footprint.

How much does the trial cost?

The trial is free.

How do I access the getting started guide?

What is the difference between this trial and the IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite 30-day trial?

The 90-day free trial for IBM Environmental Intelligence is designed for data scientists and developers. It allows users to discover accurate environmental datasets (geospatial, historical on demand, GHG emissions) and access a rich toolbox of samples and examples to build solutions to understand the impact of climate change on their industry. Pricing options will be available in Q4 2024.

The 30-day free trial for IBM Environmental Intelligence Suite allows users to explore custom dashboard visualizations, an interactive map and real-time weather alerts for specific assets or locations. It helps predict, prepare and respond to severe weather before it can disrupt businesses. These features are included in the Essentials package, which is available to buy now through the IBM Marketplace, starting at USD 500 per month.
