Meteosat, Himawari-8, GOES-16 and 17
Station networks of national weather services: e.g. German and American weather services and some private providers
Global weather model data, radiosondes, drones, models for air pollutants/particles/fine dust (ECMWF CAMS, FMI SILAM)
Global ocean models such as ECMWF-WAM, ECMWF-CMEMS, NOAA-HYCOM
Global climate model from the Meteorological Research Institute in Japan, climate scenarios based on IPCC's Shared Socioeconomic Pathways
Global Reanalysis Model (ECMWF-ERA5)

Meteocache — Modeling Weather Data in Real Time
The Meteomatics Weather API is powered by our Meteocache, which is a sophisticated background caching system housing a vast collection of observations. It enables the Weather API to recalculate forecasts using the most up-to-date information on atmospheric conditions.
To enhance the accuracy of weather data, we consider topographical details. Employing a well-established interpolation technique, we integrate the latest weather data from various models with NASA's 90m digital terrain model. This process refines the data, resulting in significantly improved local accuracy.
The Meteocache guarantees the modeling and real-time provision of large volumes of data. By synchronizing the data in both temporal and spatial dimensions, the Meteocache enables the Weather API to efficiently and rapidly respond to data queries, regardless of the size and format of the original dataset.
