Met Office on AWS Earth

Some of the most important weather datasets produced by the Met Office are now available for free on Amazon Web Services, as part of the Earth on AWS initiative.

This repo contains example code of how to access these datasets. We also give you instructions on how to request support or contribute.

Getting Started

  • Data is available on AWS in S3 buckets.
  • Each forecast simulation is comprised of many files stored in NetCDF.
  • You can subscribe to SNS topics to be notified when new data is made available.
  • You can find a list of buckets and topics on the AWS Open Data Registry.

We have made some examples available in the form of Jupyter Notebooks.

Getting Support

The team behind the Met Office on AWS Earth project is happy to help you with any question you might have about the datasets or the example code. Please submit your question on the repo's Issues section and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Contributing

You are welcome to contribute with example code, ideas or fixes. Here are the ways you can do it:
