A data block that 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.
See this block on the marketplace.
- 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, see Satellite Imagery.
|Data availability||Historical data: starting with 1979|
Forecast data: up until 2100
|Global weather forecasting model|
|Bit depth per pixel||64-bit (float)|
|Can be reused in an UP42 workflow||No|
The AOI must be minimum 0.01 km2.
Weather and climate parameters
|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|

How it works
|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.
