Weather API

We use weather data to enable smarter business. 

What data can we provide

Easily select from our wide range of global and regional weather models including:

  • Worldwide historical model data from 1979 onwards
  • Radar and satellite data, including forecasts with over 280 updates daily
  • Temporal and spatial interpolation for each coordinate

How easy is it to work with?

Delivered as a Platform as a Service all the data are easily accessible thanks to the wide variety of connectors we provide for automated data, such as:

  • C++, Matlab, Python
  • ArcGis, QGIS
  • Google Spreadsheet, Google Maps

 

Why use the weather API?

The Weather API is our own platform that allows us to provide worldwide weather data - for any application, for any industry, for any institution and for any national weather service, faster then conventional weather database systems.

What is modelling on the fly?

Whilst observational data on its own tells you what happened at a specific location in the past, weather model data can be interpolated to give you a forecast for any location. These forecast data can significantly deviate from the truth on the ground.
Weather models on their own typically struggle in topographically challenging environments, for example in alpine regions, where the difference between actual elevation and the modelled elevation can be significant, which impacts the quality of the forecasted parameters.
To overcome these challenges Meteomatics brings together a proven interpolation technique, the most recent observational data taken from weather stations, satellite images, and radar and combines these with model data that has already been snapped to NASA’s 90m digital terrain model. In this way we can deliver a highly accurate forecast for any location.

As Meteomatics API requests are not precomputed when you query for weather data, you always receive the most recently updated forecast data - on the fly!

Metigate about Meteomatics:

"We use the Meteomatics API to enrich weather models with our machine learning algorithms and to create predictive models of consumer behavior according to the weather. We particularly appreciate that Meteomatics manages all the data provision and handling which allows us to focus on our weather data transformation layer into business indicators.”

Deutscher Landwirtschaftsverlag about Meteomatics:

"Meteomatics‘ Weather API enables us to use a huge variety of agricultural weather data in order to support our agricultural target groups in field work and resource planning. Our customers in the hunting sector benefit from the moonlight and cloud cover data in such way to forecast the best hunting season. ”

Agricircle about Meteomatics

"We value the high degree of flexibility of Meteomatics’ API what delivers forecasts and historical data to us. Moreover, the naturalness of Meteomatics optimizing the API to our needs.”
