This block provides historic, current and forecast data through the Meteomatics Weather API. These datasets are available worldwide starting with 1979.

The geographic coverage is global.
|Spatial Resolution||To avoid reaching the query limit provided by the |
Meteomatics Weather API, the spatial resolution (in
decimal degrees) for retrieving the time series of a
weather parameter will be set based on the AOI size. The minimum resolution is 90 m (0.001 decimal degrees):
0.001 decimal degrees (AOI < 100 sq. km)
0.01 decimal degrees (AOI 100 - 10000 sq. km)
0.1 decimal degrees (AOI 10000 - 100000 sq. km)
1 decimal degree (AOI > 100000 sq. km)
|Dataset Type||Optical and radar|
|Satellite Sensors||The dataset is a satellite composite that merges images acquired by the following geostationary sensors:|
For more information, please refer to Global Satellite Images.
|Data Availability||Historical data: starting with 1979|
Forecast data: up until 2100
For more information, please refer to Forecast and historical data.
|Global Weather Forecasting Model|
|Bit Depth||64 bits per pixel (float)|
|Coordinate System||EPSG 4326|
|Can be reused in an UP42 workflow||No|
The AOI must be minimum 0.01 square kilometers.
|Weather and Climate Parameters||Meteomatics parameter name||Example|
|Dew point temperature AGL|
|Effective cloud cover [%]|
|Evaporation of previous interval [mm]|
|Frost depth [cm]|
|Was there rain within the last interval (0/1)|
|Ocean current speed|
|Amount of precipitation in the previous interval [mm]|
|Relative humidity [%]|

|Supported JSON parameters||Default value||Min||Max||Examples|
|0.01 sq. km||n.a.||Please check the examples from the JSON parameters.|
It is not possible to run a test query in the job configuration window. The length of the forecasting period and the spatial resolution depend on the model from which the requested parameters originate.
