API Request

GET requests

According to the REST1 standard, data can be queried using HTTP-GET or HTTP-POST requests from api.meteomatics.com. A request can be constructed using the format:
Example: https://api.meteomatics.com/2024-04-12T00:00:00ZP1D:PT1H/t_2m:C,relative_humidity_2m:p/47.4245,9.3767/html?model=mix

POST requests

POST requests can not be performed from a browser directly but there are graphical tools that can be used to construct and test POST requests. If you are sending a POST request, which is recommended for large URL lengths (>1000 characters), follow this notation:
URL: https://api.meteomatics.com/<validdatetime>/
Post-Body: <parameters>/<location>/<format>?<optionals> in plain text


Postman example

Note: We assume authentication is handled by the REST client software separately. Therefore, we omit the authentication for the rest of this document. It is possible to send the username and password in the URL (it would then start with https://username:[email protected]) but not recommended since the password is sent in plain text.
