meteoblue introduces the perfect seamless worldwide radar... animation!
Our new radar function shows recipitation radar in 15 minute updates, which are then visualised in 1-minute intervals. It is available for time ranges of 3, 6, 9, 12, 18 and 24 hours - worldwide, seamless, animated. For the USA and EU, we now offer a high-resolution 1-hour forecast, too. The range of 6-24 hours is acecssible with a subscription of point+ .
This unique function is made possible by several technology steps:
- collecting data from dozens of radar networks;
- cleaning the data to eliminate echoes and false positives;
- synchronising the timesteps from the different networks into a consistent time intervals, by applying forecast and interpolation techniques;
- blending global satellite data into the areas not covered by radar;
- creating 1-minute radar images ;
- forecasting the movement of precipitation fields;
- animating the resulting movement in 1 minute steps;
- compressing the entire package into the smallest format;
With these steps, meteoblue makes available the most detailed and precise precipitation radar images worldwide, in time for the beginning of the rainy and summer season in most countries.
