History



Meteopool was funded in the third quarter of 2004 as "Wetterpool" (new name since 10th January 2015) and firstly discontinued on 19th July 2012 due to lack of collaboration and respectively require of high administrative effort. Until 20th June 2013, the page was managed only with little effort and only a few contents. The concept of the future is, to keep the minimal administrative effort and to offer updated and free data on a flexible system. The experience with private weather stations in the past 10 years is used for global approaches, for example in OpenMeteoData.

Advertisement



The advertisement on Meteopool is used for paying the server devices and other investments for the administration of such a project. This makes the free access to the project contenct possible. During thunderstorms, requests to the server are sent within seconds. It may be necessary to upgrade the hardware, which we pay by advertisements.

You can also "donate" for us and support us, so we can set up less advertisements.
