The worlds best weather data, on demand
Complex questions deserve quality answers
Build insights and solutions using Meteomatics data to improve decision making, realise efficiencies and save costs.
Whether it’s pushing the boundaries of UAV design and engineering to create our own purpose built weather drones (Meteodrones), allowing us to capture observations missed by traditional methods (such as satellites and weather balloons), downscaling forecasts to 90m or calculating forecasts on the fly to ensure a customer receives a forecast based on the latest observations.
We are committed to the creation of accurate weather forecasts that clients can trust, going to extra effort to make our weather api easy to consume.
Easy to use API
Single source of weather data
On the fly calculation for the most up-to-date forecast
Downscaling weather forecasts to 90 metres, globally!
Fast & performant architecture
Meteomatics weather API delivers fast, direct, simple access to an extensive range of global weather and environmental data.
A single API endpoint to access weather and earth data covering the globe, from weather forecasts, observations. Plus Web Feature Services and Web Map Services.
Customers weather forecast requests are calculated ‘on the fly’, using the latest observations. Giving users confidence that they are receiving the most accurate and up to date weather data possible.
We improve the accuracy of weather data by taking into account the detail of the topography (down to 90 metres*) for any lat / long.
Our Meteocache aligns data in time and space to ensure that the Weather API can efficiently and very quickly, return the requested data query despite the size and format of the original data set.
Organizations across the globe and industry trust Meteomatics to deliver

The Unicode Unicorns
The Unicode Unicorns are a data science team founded in October 2018 by Kelby Stockstill and Katelyn Hertel for the NASA Space Apps Challenge. The team, which consists of people with diverse skills from design to programming, set itself to the task of solving real world problems using data. The team won the 2019 NASA Space Apps Challenge NYC with their project For Your Ice Only.
Over the weekend (30th / 31st May), we were invited by NASA to support their global hackathon. Coders, technologists and others participated in an all-virtual challenge to identify trends in the COVID-19 pandemic. During a period of 48 hours, more than 15,000 participants from 150 countries created more than 2,000 virtual teams.
We saw a huge interest in our weather api, providing access to hundreds of teams who used our data, alongside other Earth observation data sets from providers including NASA, European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and the National Centre for Space Studies (CNES), to build insights and propose solutions to one of twelve challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The challenges focused on the following themes:
- Learning about the virus and its spread using space-based data
- Local response/change and solutions
- Impacts of COVID-19 on the Earth system/Earth system response
- Economic opportunity, impact, and recovery during and following COVID-19
We received lots of positive feedback from participants who found our weather api easy to use and integrate with other data sets at both a global and local level. Helping them analyse and understand the interplay between weather and earth systems in a very short period of time (over a weekend)!
We were really proud to be asked to collaborate by NASA Space Apps Challenge Team and look forward to seeing how the proposals could provide insights between weather and COVID-19. We hope a winning proposal has created a solution that will help the globe mitigate the impact of COVID-19.
In July, the Space Apps Global Organizing Team will announce the Global Finalists and six global winners will be announced in early August. Meteomatics will share the results and the innovative solutions created on our social media channels and website.
It's now just over 12 months since the COVID-19 pandemic impacted our lives, with countries and their economies going into lockdown to prevent the continuing transmission of what was a very unknown, and serious virus that was making people very ill and overwhelming...
St. Gallen, February 24, 2021: Meteomatics, the Swiss-based global weather service provider and weather drone expert, is delighted to announce that their efforts improving the development of hyperlocal weather forecasts are now supported by global technology leader,...
The cold weather experienced in parts of the Northern Hemisphere, including large parts of Europe, was caused by January’s Sudden Stratospheric Warming (SSW) event which resulted in the temporary collapse of the Polar Vortex. The cold weather conditions across most...
