history+ offers historical weather simulation data for the whole world with a spatial resolution between 4 and 30 km, not measurement data. These data are fully complete and without any gaps. The worldwide data availability and completeness are unique. Data are available for any place on Earth and on different altitude levels, independent of weather measurement stations. Simulation data are especially suitable for assessing weather for areas and regions over longer time periods. Interactive graphs allow immediate access to continuous time series for your locations.

Starting in 1979, the historical weather data are available in hourly steps or daily aggregations with a spatial resolution of 30 km, whereas higher resolution data are available since 2008 for nearly every place on Earth. Extensive verifications of our weather models are regularly conducted and thereby, top data quality is ensured.

history+ includes common weather variables. Other variables are available on request.

history+ features

Data download

You can easily download consistent historical weather simulation data. All data can be downloaded immediately in csv format.

Interactive interface to analyse data

Interactive graphs allow immediate access to continuous time series for your locations or various coordinates.

Year comparison

The year comparison compares certain weather variables in different years. Visualise several seasons with accumulated precipitation or growing degree days (GDD) in one graph. more


The online analysis tool for frequency patterns displays occurrences of pre-defined values in a given time range. more

Wind rose

The wind rose displays the distribution of wind and classifies wind directions and intensities. more

Risk assessment

The risk assessment tool provides an analysis of different events (e.g. cold events or warm) over the last 40 years. By comparing different years, you can reveal patterns of specific events. more
