Climate Intelligence Methodology

ignitia’s forecasts and Climate Intelligence are 2x more accurate for tropical regions than the traditional weather forecast models that power most of the world’s existing weather apps and services.

This is because ignitia’s forecasting system is based on 30 person-years of research and development to address the specific challenges of forecasting rainfall and climate variability in tropical climates such as West Africa and Brazil.


Traditional weather forecasting was developed for European and American climates and generally does not work well in tropical zones, nor does it focus on agribusiness challenges. This is because traditional models are optimized for temperate climates and struggle to predict rain and other key agricultural influencing conditions on a smaller scale. Accuracy averages about 39% accuracy in West Africa; even flipping a coin would do better.


ignitia is the first weather forecast model developed especially for tropical climates, with coverage throughout emerging markets. Our forecast is focused on providing timely and relevant information for making essential agribusiness decisions such as crop selection, soil preparation, application of inputs; from land preparation until it reaches the buyer.
