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

|NetCDF → GeoTIFF Conversion|
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 km2)
0.01 decimal degrees (AOI 100 - 10000 km2)
0.1 decimal degrees (AOI 10000 - 100000 km2)
1 decimal degree (AOI > 100000 km2)
|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 km2.
|Weather and climate parameters||Meteomatics parameter name||Example|
|Wind speed U|
|Wind speed V|
|Mean, maximum, minimum wind speed|
|Power line oscillation for the last 24 hours|
For a complete list, please refer to the Meteomatics Wind and Solar Power Parameter List.
|Supported JSON parameters||Default value||Min||Max||Examples|
|0.01 km2||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.
