Data Origin

Where Does Meteomatics Get Its Data From?

We determine weather data with the help of known weather models, radar and satellite data, special downscaling calculations and our own drone technology. By refining various measurement data, we are able to achieve unprecedented accuracy, especially at the local level. Many of our customers find this extremely valuable because they are often engaged in activities that are highly dependent on the local weather. This includes, for example, the production of renewable energy,land and sea transportation or the operation of an airport.

  • Combination of high-resolution weather models

  • Innovative measurement technology with the Meteodrones weather drones

  • Improved accuracy of weather data via downscaling

Step by Step Towards Hyperlocal Weather Output:

  1. Weather data is collected by weather models

  2. Combination of different weather models delivers first-class data

  3. Weather data is enhanced to produce hyperlocal forecasting

  4. Weather data is provided in real time

  5. Customers can access weather data via the weather API

Combination of High-Resolution Weather Models

The processing of high-quality weather and satellite data, from leading centres worldwide, with self-developed scientific procedures and post-processing methods leads to highly accurate forecasts.

When using weather models, a distinction is made between spatial and temporal resolution. The spatial resolution describes the number of grid cells in the forecast model. A high spatial resolution means that the grid points where model output is produced are spatially close together. With a high spatial resolution of one kilometre or less, many local and dynamic effects can be mapped, which greatly refines and thus improves weather forecasts at the local level.

A temporal resolution indicates the change in weather model output over a time interval. We speak of a high temporal resolution when the weather changes are given in five-minute steps or less. With a high temporal resolution, we are able to greatly improve the weather forecasts with regard to the temporal occurrence of the weather events. Our weather data can be provided with a resolution of 1 minute and less.

Meteomatics offers weather models with different resolutions, for more information see Models and data sources.

Innovative Measurement Technology With Weather Drones

To make weather forecasts even more accurate in the future, we are the only company in the world to collect atmospheric data with our self-developed weather drone system, the "Meteodrone".

Due to insufficient measurement data coverage in the middle and lower atmospheric layer, weather models are in most cases not yet able to accurately predict weather phenomena such as fog, low clouds and thunderstorms. To close this data gap, we developed Meteodrones.

For the first time, this makes it possible to carry out high-resolution and direct measurements of temperature, humidity and wind. If the data is fed into the weather models, fog, low clouds and thunderstorms in particular can be predicted much better on a local level.

By downscaling, we are able to extract fine and granular details from existing weather models.
90-Meter Downscaling

Accuracy of Weather Data by Downscaling

For the most accurate weather data, a much higher model resolution is required than is the case with global weather models today. At Meteomatics, we also break down the information from different weather models using local terrain models with a resolution of 90 metres. We call this approach 90-metre downscaling, i.e. scaling the model data with respect to the local topographical conditions.

These local landscape conditions are thus included in the local weather forecasts we deliver. In this way we achieve a refinement of the weather forecasts based on the existing weather models.

To be able to implement this, we have developed a proprietary technology that allows us to downscale model output in real time. The Meteomatics Mix provides the appropriate refined output from all available weather models for each coordinate worldwide. By providing nowcasts in 5-minute time steps, we ensure that we can deliver accurate data for every point worldwide.

Historical Data

Historical Weather Data From Meteomatics

In addition to current and forecast data, we also offer historical weather data from weather stations and historical weather model data including historical forecast data from 1979 onwards.

Historical weather data can be used for machine learning or for location analyses, for example. The historical data can be conveniently obtained in all formats via the weather API or via the weather data shop.

Climate Scenarios

In order to take socio-economic developments into account in future climate projections, five climate scenarios (SSP) are distinguished based on IPCC's Shared Socioeconomic Pathway. This allows uncertainties regarding the consequences of climate change as well as socio-economic pathways regarding adaptation and mitigation strategies to be included. With the help of the weather map tool MetX, you can visualise different climate scenarios.

  • Sustainability (SSP 1)

  • Social, economic and technological trends (SSP 2)

  • Regional rivalry (SSP 3)

  • Inequality (SSP 4)

  • Development with fossil fuels (SSP 5)
