Example

const planetos = require ('planetos') ({
  apikey: 'abc123'
});
 
// NOAA Wave Watch 3 data
const params = {
  lon: -50.5,
  lat: 49.5,
  count: 1,
  context: 'reftime_time_lat_lon'
};
 
planetos ('noaa_ww3_global_1.25x1d', params, console.log);

Installation

This module requires an API key from Planet OS. You can find it in your account settings.

npm install planetos

Configuration

The module takes the following settings:

param type required default description
apikey string yes Your API key
timeout number no 5000 Request timeout in ms
endpoint string no Planet OS Override default API endpoint (i.e. proxy)
const planetos = require ('planetos') ({
  apikey: 'abc123',
  timeout: 10000,
  endpoint: 'https://my.proxy/http://data.planetos.com/v1'
});

API call

The function takes these arguments:

argument type required description
dataset string yes Dataset name, i.e. noaa_ww3_global_1.25x1d
params object yes Dataset query parameters
callback function yes function (err, data) {}
// Process results
function myCallback (err, data) {
  if (err) {
    return console.log (err);
  }
 
  console.dir (data, {
    depth: null,
    colors: true
  });
}
 
// Query parameters
const params = {
  lon: -50.5,
  lat: 49.5,
  count: 1,
  context: 'reftime_time_lat_lon'
};
 
// Request data from API
planetos ('noaa_ww3_global_1.25x1d', params, myCallback);

Output:

{ stats: { maxCount: 61, offset: 0, count: 1 },
