Intellicast is a business unit within WSI, Weather Services International. Intellicast was started in 1996. Soon after the release of the web site, we launched the Intellicast Content Syndication business when we started to receive requests from companies that wanted to include the same quality maps and data on their own web sites.

Wherever you are on earth, WSI plays a role in your life. WSI’s mission is to detect, forecast, and depict disruptive weather. It is the ultimate local news story. Fresh and vital every day, each one of us tunes in for the report that will affect our commute, our weekend, even what we’ll wear. No wonder WSI is the choice of more media companies than any other weather vendor around the world. But like the weather itself, our activity goes well beyond what you can see on television. Entire regions of the country rely on our Energy Division for the long-range forecasts that enable them to prepare for their seasonal power needs months in advance. And you depend on our Aviation Division for pinpoint accuracy in detecting wind shear and other phenomenon every time you board an airplane. Wherever life and capital are at stake, WSI is the leader in providing protection against disruptive weather.

WSI has the world’s largest commercial meteorological database, incorporating U.S. National Weather Service, U.S. military, Canadian, British, and Japanese governments, other international agencies, and commercial vendors. WSI has extensive data collection facilities for NEXRAD, satellite, NWP models, lightning, and other meteorological data. We receive the NEXRAD data via the NWS Central Radar Distribution System and also through NOAAport as a redundant path. To support the volume of inbound data needed to create the variety of products supplied by WSI, WSI manages 21 on-site satellite dishes.
