Understory in the World
Innovating Weather Data
Understory detects rain, hail, wind, and other weather events where the risk to life and property is the greatest—directly at the earth’s surface. While traditional, radar-enabled weather centers collect data by analyzing conditions observed in the atmosphere, Understory uses sensor-enabled data to make predictions that impact industries such as insurance, agriculture, and broadcast.
