Brand history

Founded in 1993, Earth Networks started in the education market by pioneering a program that installed professional-grade weather stations at schools and then networked them together.

After creating, perfecting, and using the WeatherBug mobile and desktop applications to help consumers get hyperlocal weather data, Earth Networks sold the brand in 2016 to focus more on mitigating weather-related risks for businesses and governments.

Today, Earth Networks retains ownership of the over 10,000 weather stations and sensors that continue to power applications such as WeatherBug throughout the world. Our Earth Networks Total Lightning Network® has grown into the most reliable and precise lightning detection system in the world.

In 2018, Earth Networks joined the AEM family of brands, increasing forecasting capacity and the size of our sensor network significantly.
