The dataset contains full time series of satellite and radar images,
weather models and ground observations.
To keep the dataset at a reasonable size, the data covers two geographic areas of 550km x 550km on the Mediterranean and Brittany coasts, and spans over 3 years, 2016 to 2018.
We have prepared this free dataset to let the data science community play with it.

The data have been carefully chosen to remain reasonable in size. The full dataset weights 218GB but most packages are only a few GB. If you have a small hard drive, you can download only part of them.
Have a look at our toolbox which includes data samples from MeteoNet written in python language and our tutorials/documentation which help you explore and cross-check all data types.
Play with it and if you send us your results, we could showcase them on this website!Download MeteoNet
The data are also available on Kaggle with notebooks to help you explore and cross-check all data types!
