Support

To support scientific, artistic, welfare or relief work, meteoblue AG agrees on the following:

  • Delivery of data, products or services depending on the agreement and the required time period.
  • Provision of data, products or services through a suitable (electronic) media for retrieval by the author.

Simulation data 

meteoblue can provide historical and forecast weather data for any place in the world. These are data simulation with high accuracy. Usually, they are not as perfect as precipitation measurement data, but they are 100% complete (which rarely happens with measurements), much more detailed (hourly intervals) and also valid for places without measurements. 

Forecast data 

meteoblue offer a wide range of data packages for any place in the world through our meteoblue API. To create an APIkey please provide the following information to info@meteoblue.com:

1) Number of locations

2) Desired data package (e.g. "basic-1h" or weather variable(s) (e.g. temperature, precipitation)

3) Start date

4) End date

History data 

meteoblue provides historical weather data for any place in the world. The spatial resolution of the simulation data is depending on the selected location and time period. The data is delivered in csv formate through email. 

If you need historical raw data, please send us the following information to info@meteoblue.com:

1) Coordinates of the desired place(s)(Latitude, Longitude):

2) Weather variable(s)(e.g. temperature, precipitation):

3) Time period (available since 1985- today): from .. to..

4) Interval (hourly, daily/monthly/yearly aggregations):

5) Additional information (optional)

5.1) Additional information for solar data (PV system information:slope angle, orientation, capacity (kWp))

5.2) Special requirements and comments
