Planning your transition to the new EUMETView service

We recommend that all users now start to transition from the old EUMETView service to the new EUMETView service.

In order to encourage users to make the switch over we are implementing some ‘wake-up’ calls in the form of redirects and content removals. From end November, we will begin to redirect some of the layers from the old to the new service, and from early January, we will begin to phase out some of the layers we provide through the old service. The transition timeline is as follows.

Old service redirects

30 November 2021: redirect all MSG IODC layers to the new EUMETView service.

6 December 2021: redirect all Metop and Copernicus layers to the new EUMETView service.

Depending upon the tools used to access the EUMETView API, users may see an interruption to the service. If affected, this is your ‘wake-up’ call to switch to the new EUMETView API.

Old service terminations

From January, we will begin to incrementally terminate the layers on the old EUMETView service. As a result, users will notice error messages.

10 January 2022: terminate all Metop layers on the old EUMETView service.

18 January 2022: terminate all Copernicus layers on the old EUMETView service.

8 February 2022: terminate all MSG IODC visualised products and RGB layers on the old EUMETView service.

15 February 2022: terminate all MSG 0° visualised products and RGB layers on the old EUMETView service.

22 February 2022: terminate all MSG IODC single, channel layers on the old EUMETView service.

28 February 2022: terminate all MSG 0° single, channel layers on the old EUMETView service and end redirects to new service.

Getting to know the new EUMETView service

The new EUMETView service offers a range of additional layers not found in the old service, coupled with some exciting new features. If you would like to know more about these new features, or would like support in transitioning to the new service, please join us at one of the upcoming dedicated training sessions:
