Case study: weather analytics for business

Case study: weather analytics for business

‘How’s the weather up there?’ is a serious question at One World Observatory

On a clear day, people head to the top of One World Trade Center to view the iconic New York City skyline. On cloudy or very humid days, visits decrease noticeably. So the city’s highest observatory needs solid long-range weather forecasts to create optimal staffing schedules.

Publicly available reports weren’t robust enough for One World Observatory’s planning needs, so they enlisted The Weather Company for precision forecasting data to help predict visitor volume and schedule ample staff to provide a great guest experience.
