Our Vision

We are the global leader in weather intelligence.

Our Mission

To provide the most accurate weather data for any location at any time to improve our customers’ business.

The Meteomatics Vision

With our Weather Intelligence approach, we aim to take the accuracy of weather forecasts to a whole new level. To achieve this, we create unique technologies for forecasts, calculate high-resolution weather models and combine all this with the outstanding skills of our employees.

What We Do

Meteomatics specializes in high-resolution commercial weather forecasting, power output forecasting for wind, solar and hydro, weather data gathering from the lower atmosphere using Meteodrones, and weather data delivery via the Weather API.

Our high-quality weather information enables our customers to make better decisions every day. From improving safety onboard ships and aircrafts to saving fuel and optimizing the performance of renewable energy facilities, access to accurate weather data helps companies increase their productivity and reduce the risks for their business.

Comprehensive Observational Data

To provide current and historical data, Meteomatics aggregates the latest weather forecast models, satellite data, rainfall radar information, and station observations from a variety of sources around the planet, such as Met Office, ECMWF, NOAA (US), and MeteoSwiss. Meteomatics can also process the data of third-party services (Telemetry, Sensor, IoT) to provide bespoke sector-specific information quickly and easily. We then apply downscaling techniques and scientific methods to output improved forecast data for any coordinate.

Innovative Data Gathering

We produce our own high-resolution atmospheric model at a 1km resolution across Switzerland. The ‘Swiss1K’ model is only possible due to the data received from our unique Meteodrone measurements within the lowest atmospheric layers. Meteodrones are developed and constructed in-house and have permission to fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) granted by the Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA), making Meteomatics the only weather data provider able to extract data from the lower layer of the atmosphere (up to 3km above ground level) in a specific, targeted way. We use Meteodrone data to enhance existing NWP output, allowing the provision of more accurate local weather forecasts.

Seamless Implementation

Meteomatics cost-effectively delivers this data across business units in a variety of cutting-edge and futureproof formats. Our Weather API integrates with industry-leading modeling, GIS, and data analytics providers. Also, thanks to economies of scale and our access to weather data delivered via our cloud infrastructure, while our customers' data costs get reduced, data quality and access are enhanced, a genuine partnership win-win. By accessing the Weather API, our customers can make data available for internal and external teams to deliver data-driven operational insights.

Our Story

It was during a turbulent flight as a private pilot – everyone knows the inconvenience of turbulence and that weather often does not behave like forecasted – that Martin Fengler was shook awake and two things struck his mind: hyperlocal weather forecasts would be a significant benefit and the accuracy of forecasts needs to be greatly improved. Subsequently, Meteomatics was founded with the goal to revolutionize weather forecasting – through combining a next generation Forecasting Engine1 with the potential of yet untapped weather data2, measured by Meteodrones.

Meteomatics has developed rapidly since its foundation: from a small core team working on Meteodrones to an international company with over 60 employees, ranging from data scientists, meteorologists, hydrologists, physicists, drone engineers, electrical engineers, technologists & business professionals, and a very diverse and international customer base from various industries. This confirms Meteomatics to be on the right track with its approach.

In addition to the world-beating accuracy in weather data, Meteomatics was one of the first providers to understand that customers also want to have flexible access to a large data repository.

Through 10 years of development experience and know-how building, Meteomatics has managed to establish itself as a top global provider of weather data and weather drone technology.
