Meteonorm is a unique combination of reliable data sources and sophisticated calculation tools.
Meteonorm generates accurate and representative typical years for any place on earth. You can choose from more than 30 different weather parameters.
The database consists of more than 8 000 weather stations, five geostationary satellites and a globally calibrated aerosol climatology. On this basis, sophisticated interpolation models, based on more than 30 years of experience, provide results with high accuracy worldwide.
- Global coverage
Data from more than 8 000 weather stations worldwide and five geostationary satellites.
- Data period
The standard periods are 1991–2010 / 1996–2015 for irradiation data and 2000–2009 for other parameters.
- Current data
Current data can be downloaded inside the software. Third party data can be imported.
- Time intervals
Meteonorm generates monthly, daily, hourly and minute values.
Interpolation models calculate typical years for any location worldwide.
Transparent information on data sources and uncertainty provided for each data set. Validation papers available on the website.
