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 aircraft 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.
Innovative Data Gathering
We combine current and historical weather data from various sources worldwide, including weather models, satellite data, precipitation radar information, ocean data, and station observations. Furthermore, unlike other weather data providers, we develop and manufacture our own autonomous weather drones - Meteodrones - which fly up to 6 km above ground level to collect data from the planetary boundary layer. Thanks to a special permission from the Federal Office of Civil Aviation, Meteodrones can fly beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS), allowing us to collect data even inside clouds and fog. We integrate the data collected by Meteodrones into the calculation of our EURO1k weather model, providing even more precise and reliable forecasts. By accessing multiple data sources, we can efficiently compute sector-specific weather information and parameters tailored to our clients' needs.
High Precision and Hyperlocal Forecasting
Meteomatics' EURO1k weather model boasts a unique 1km resolution, providing highly accurate weather forecasts throughout Europe, tailored for various sectors. Furthermore, our weather API technology employs 90-metre downscaling using NASA's digital terrain model, enabling us to provide hyperlocal forecasts globally.
To guarantee the most precise forecasts, we calibrate our models with the latest weather data measured by global weather stations, thus optimising the model output. The combination of these methods results in unrivalled accuracy, which is especially important for local activities (such as airport management, renewable energy production, etc.) that rely heavily on accurate weather predictions.
Super Computing and Data Processing
Meteomatics comprises both meteorologists and IT specialists, allowing us to deliver unparalleled weather data. Today, our database contains over 15 petabytes of weather data, and it is growing every day. Making such large amounts of data accessible is associated with great challenges. With our sophisticated background caching system, Meteocache, we store vast amounts of observations, enabling our Weather API to recalculate forecasts in real-time using the latest atmospheric information. Our Meteocache system matches data in time and space, ensuring that even large data sets can be efficiently and quickly queried in any format.
Additionally, we also develop and maintain our own high-performance computer cluster, built with 40’000 CPU cores, to calculate our own high-resolution weather model, EURO1k, within one hour. This calculation capability in only one hour is worldwide unique.
At Meteomatics, we prioritise making complex weather data user-friendly for seamless, fast, and flexible integration into existing workflows and IT systems. We offer free connectors on Github for multiple programming languages, including MATLAB, Python, R, and more. The information obtained through our API can be output in various formats, such as CSV, XML, JSON, and NetCDF, to suit your needs. Our data's WMS/WFS capability enables easy integration into visualisations. Thanks to our high degree of flexibility and fast data delivery, customers can easily access and integrate real-time weather information to optimise operational processes and manage extreme weather situations better.

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.
