What data is available in our API?

  • Weather data, environmental data, climate data, ocean and water data (Over 7 petabytes, and growing daily).
  • Model data (ECMWF, UKMO, etc.), station data, satellite imagery, radar data, and lightning data
  • High-resolution weather models developed in-house for unique forecast quality
  • Over 1800 different weather, ocean, and environmental parameters (parameter list)
  • Forecast data, ensemble and trend forecasts, forecasts up to 7 months ahead
  • Climate data including climate scenarios up to the year 2100 (details)

What is the performance and data quality of our weather API?

  • Real-time data retrieval, response time of a few milliseconds (real-time access to over 7 petabytes thanks to unique data processing technology).
  • Highest data quality: over 1640 updates per day ensure accuracy and timeliness
  • "On the fly" downscaling using topographic maps enables 90-meter resolution worldwide, greatly improving accuracy at the local level
  • High temporal resolution of data of 5 min (intervals)
  • Query of multiple parameters simultaneously for single or multiple locations, routes and areas (polygons and gridded)

How to work with our weather API and how to get support?

  • An API (Application Programming Interface) provides an interface for various programming languages that allows developers and programmers to integrate the data directly into their systems in the desired format in just a few steps.
  • The API can also be used very intuitively via the URL Creator. For this purpose, the individual components of the URL can be easily adapted directly in the browser. You can find detailed instructions here.
  • Start your project, your trial or your comparison in a few seconds: the free trial access is available immediately after registration and you can start right away.
  • Customized Business API packages are delivered within one business day
  • Use our free connectors for all major programming languages on Github: MATLAB, Python, C++, R, Java, C#, JS, Excel, Power BI, Go, ArcGIS, QGIS, Julia, and more (Github)
  • Extensive documentation and Q&A makes getting started and working with our weather API even easier
