Nowcasting applications 

Images (graphics)

meteoblue offers thousands of images from different categories, that can easily be integrated into your software. These images can be individually customized as they are available in many languages for any location on Earth. 

Precipitation radar

meteoblue offers animated maps for precipitation radar as simple plugin for your website or app. Dynamic maps can be easily integrated via iframe in a matter of minutes. Radar images are always centered on a certain location to provide an optimal user experience. The user is able to move and zoom the viewport and control the animation. Radar maps are available in a time resolution of 5-15 minutes for most countries in Europe, North America, South America and some more. The precipitation radar observation consists of animated images of the last 2 hours. In most regions meteoblue offers an 2 hour projection into the future as well.

rainSPOT

The rainSPOT shows precipitation in the surrounding of the selected location for the time interval (hours) preceding the indicated time. Thus it summarizes the actual or future precipitation conditions at a glance. It is available as raw data feed or image through the meteoblue weather API for any location worldwide.

Satellite images

meteoblue offers animated maps for satellite data as simple plugin for your website or app. Dynamic maps can be easily integrated via iframe in a matter of minutes. Satellite images are always centered on a certain location to provide an optimal user experience. The user is able to move and zoom the viewport and control the animation. The satellite maps are available any region worldwide.

Weather maps

meteoblue offers various layers for our weather maps, that can easily be integrated into any web application. 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 (e.g. GoogleMaps). The following layers include observations of the last hour:

Data packages (raw data)
