Weather maps

Weather maps

The meteoblue weather maps are offered for various layers with lines (optional) for different height levels. All maps are available through the meteoblue API and on the meteoblue website. The meteoblue API delivers the maps as graphics in png format that have to be implemented on a map (for example GoogleMap).
