What is EUMETView?


EUMETView is an Online Map Service (OMS) that provides data visualisation through a customisable web user interface (WebUI) and an enhanced set of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard application programming interfaces (APIs).

The EUMETView WebUI allows you to personalise your data viewing, and to save your settings for future use. Data can be viewed as either point-based information, and as time series. Maps, and their corresponding geo-referenced products, can be animated and downloaded. These may be saved in either ‘Event mode’, tying the view to a specific point in time for later recall, or ‘Live mode’, where the latest updated version of the map will be recalled when requested.

The OGC APIs allow users to integrate EUMETView in to other applications using the available web map Web Map Service (WMS), Web Coverage Service (WCS) and Web Feature Service (WFS). The availability of a given API depends on the product selected from the catalogue.
