Measurement networks & portal

Are you looking for a solution to manage your measurement network and visualize the data?

Measurement portal for environmental measurements

Meteotest has developed an environmental measurement data portal with the following functionalities:

  • Password protected access
  • Visualization of time series
  • Data download
  • Station logbook
  • Creation of SMS/e-mail alerts

We offer you a full service package for the operation of your measurements:

  • Configuration of the measurement data portal
  • Configuration or development of import routines for all logger and sensor types
  • Operation as SaaS or cloud solution
  • API web service for machine access
  • Optional: design, installation, operation, monitoring and maintenance of your stations
  • Optional: Web application for publishing data/graphs

Soil moisture - for soil-friendly operations

Knowledge of the current soil moisture is crucial for a careful and sustainable use of soil in agriculture and forestry as well as in construction-related earthworks.

For various cantons, Meteotest operates a 50-station soil measuring network that provides information on the current soil condition and thus provides decision-making aids for soil-conserving work. In addition to soil moisture, we also measure suction tension and meteorological data. The data are visualized on the platform developed by Meteotest.

For WSL's experimental tree plantations project, Meteotest configures the measuring stations and operates the measurement data portal. The measuring network, which will consist of 60 stations after completion, also determines soil moisture as well as meteorological parameters.


Aviation weather - know where the wind blows

From private paragliding to Swiss Air-Rescue Rega, aviation is dependent on accurate and up-to-date information on the weather situation.

We install and operate aviation-qualified weather stations, take care of data management and provide the data in suitable web applications. When necessary, we supplement the stations with webcams to monitor weather conditions at critical points using live images.

Thanks to 7-day operation of our weather forecast, we can personally advise you almost at any time on the meteorological situation and development.

Road weather - detect black ice in good time

We install, operate and maintain road weather stations. Non-contact or built-in road sensors provide information on road conditions using parameters such as road temperature, salinity and water film height. Meteorological sensors measure air temperature, precipitation, snow depth and visibility. Webcams allow a quick view of the road surface, with infrared illumination even at night.

We develop simple and comprehensive web solutions for cantons and municipalities to monitor road conditions in the area of operation with up-to-date weather forecasts, optimized for smartphones and tablets on request.
