Where virtual data comes from?

Virtual sensor data quality is the same as our other product METOS® VWS (Virtual Weather Station) and comes from the best available weather simulation for the specific location.

Various weather models are incorporated, which in turn are calculated from data measured by weather stations, observation data from satellites, and a number of other data sources.

For locations with a nearby weather station, the station’s data are automatically used to further improve the quality.

The precipitation virtual data is updated using radar data (if available) and satellite data is used to update the data for cloud cover and global solar radiation.
