Creating a Local weather Map Project


I’m working on the local weather map project and am getting the geolocation services working as well as the ajax request returning a response. For the location, i know the dark ski api returns a timezone for the location.

I’m going to assume that’s not what you want to use but i wanted to clarify if i should pass the lat and long response into a google maps api call ect to get the actual location or if the timezone was sufficient?


I would recommend checking it somehow (like with the google maps API like you mentioned) because the timezone is most likely not going to be descriptive enough. The mainland U.S. is pretty massive so despite two places being in the same timezone the weather in those places could actually still be pretty different.
