Introducing EUMETSAT data services

Info

Currently, these pages focus solely on the new pilot data services being released by EUMETSAT in 2020. For further information on well established services, please see the EUMETSAT data webpage.

As part of an evolution to its Data Services, in 2020 EUMETSAT is releasing pilot data services which provide new data access capabilities to users. The new data services comprise the EUMETSAT Data Tailor, EUMETSAT Data Store, EUMETView, the EUMETCast Terrestrial system and the European Weather Cloud. In these pages below you will find the necessary information required to access and use these services. For further information and updates on the evolution of the these services, please visit the EUMETSAT website.
