Capabilities of the Meteomatics Weather API
Enables an unlimited number of daily accesses
Provides interfaces such as WMS and WFS, along with several other formats
Delivers forecasts with an average response time ranging from 20 to 30 ms, depending on the query
Ensures secure functionality with HTTP basic authentication and support for HTTPS
Operates as a RESTful API, enabling convenient weather data retrieval through URLs
Makes everything available in one interface: Historical and current weather data, weather forecasts, climate models, and data from over 25 weather models
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.
