The Finnish Meteorological Institute's open data

The Finnish Meteorological Institute has made its data sets freely available for public use. The data sets are available in machine-readable, digital format. There are also some computer programs developed at the Institute that have released as open-source code.

Through the Open Data services of the Finnish Meteorological Institute it is possible to search for, browse and download the Institute's data sets in machine-readable format free of charge.

The technical implementation of the online service complies with the requirements laid down in the INSPIRE Directive. The content of the service is wider than that defined in the INSPIRE Directive. The search service will share the open data according to the Open Geospatial Consortium standards. Additional information: Open Geospatial Consortium

Services associated with the data sets

If a customer wants the Finnish Meteorological Institute to search for and supply data sets to the customer, the Institute charges the customer for delivering the data. A fee is also charged for the tailoring of data sets, for the provision of services and for the use of data sets other than those made available now.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute provides advice and consultancy pertaining to the data sets. Help and advice are available, for instance, about the use and processing of open data.
