Global Weather Corporation® (GWC) is an information company with proprietary technology that produces real-time precision weather forecasts needed by businesses to improve decision-making, increase operational efficiency, and serve their business/consumer customers. GWC’s forecasts are tuned on-demand to any specific location or geography in the world and delivered through a scalable transaction-based web services model. We serve a growing business and consumer market demand – improved accuracy at exact locations with better timeliness than anyone else.
Accomplishing this is made possible by commercializing one of the world’s most effective core weather forecasting technologies, developed at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). NCAR is a Federally Funded Research & Development Center (FFRDC) funded primarily through a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF). It is operated by the University Corporation for National Research (UCAR), a consortium of universities. Intellectual property and commercialization of NCAR technology is accomplished through the UCAR Foundation (UCARF), a non-profit organization chartered by UCAR. In 2003, UCARF formed a startup incubation company Peak Weather Resources that has spun off two companies, Advanced Radar Corporation (2007) and GWC (2009). Both are partly owned by UCARF.
