Using with Google Maps

Using with Google Maps

Xweather provides a suite of tools for using our layers with various mapping libraries, including the Xweather JavaScript SDK (opens in a new tab). In some use cases, you may have existing applications using the Google Maps JS SDK (opens in a new tab), which you can add Maps layers to.

The following provides an example of the Xweather Raster Maps radar layer integrated with the Google Maps JS SDK (opens in a new tab) library.
