Displaying current temperature data from OpenWeather service displayed on the map.

The following customization sample allows a Smart M.App application to display OpenWeather up to date temperature data on the map. This example downloads current weather information from the OpenWeather API server. Note that access to forecast data may be implemented in a similar fashion.


Customization JavaScript Code:


var apikey = "<insert your OpenWeather Key here>";
var serviceHost = "http://api.openweathermap.org/"; //must be replaced with HTTPS proxy host

var getJSON = function(url) {
    return new Promise(function(resolve, reject) {
        var xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
        xhr.open('get', url, true);
        xhr.responseType = 'json';
        xhr.onload = function() {
            var status = xhr.status;
            if (status == 200) {
            } else {

var onMapMoved = function(ev, args) {
    gsp.map.info(function(ret) {
        var info = ret.info;
        var bbox = info.wgs84.bbox[0] + "," + info.wgs84.bbox[1] + "," + info.wgs84.bbox[2] + "," + info.wgs84.bbox[3];
        var serviceUrl = serviceHost + "data/2.5/box/city?bbox=" + bbox + "&cluster=yes&appid=" + apikey;
        getJSON(serviceUrl).then(function(data) {

            for (i = 0; i < data.cnt; i++) {
                var city = data.list[i];

                    geojson: {
                        "type": "Feature",
                        "geometry": {
                            "type": "Point",
                            "coordinates": [city.coord.lon, city.coord.lat]
                    icon: {
                        html: "<div class='weather'>\
                                    <img src='http://openweathermap.org/img/w/" + city.weather[0].icon + ".png'/> \
                                    <div class='value'>" + parseInt(city.main.temp) + "&#8451;</div> \
                                        <tr><td>City</td><td>" + city.name + "</td></tr>\
                                        <tr><td>Weather</td><td class='capitalize'>" + city.weather[0].description + "</td></tr>\
                                        <tr><td>Humidity</td><td>" + city.main.humidity + "%</td></tr>\
                                        <tr><td>Pressure</td><td>" + city.main.pressure + "hPa</td></tr>\
                                        <tr><td>Wind</td><td class='windDir'>" + city.wind.speed + "<sup>m</sup>/<sub>s</sub><span style='transform: rotateZ(" + city.wind.deg + "deg);'>&#65514;</span></td></tr>\
                                        <tr><td>Clouds</td><td>" + city.clouds.all + "%</td></tr>\
                        anchor: [0, 0],
                        className: ""

        }, function(status) {
            alert('Something went wrong.');

when I run the app I get nine times the following error in the chrome consoIe and nothing is displayed in the map:

Uncaught Error: Invalid LatLng object: (NaN, NaN)

Can you give me a hint where to place the exception handling for teh case that there is no value provided for lon/lat?

And could you maybe provide a screenshot of the map how it should look like in the end?
