Third Party Services

Thanks to international cooperation EUMETSAT is able to provide users with satellite data from other organisations.

Spring equinox 2016

We provide a selection of services designed to support environmental monitoring, as well as operational forecasting activities. We take third party data from a number of partner organisations and, either modify them slightly, or redistribute them unchanged to our users through EUMETCast. External data providers are responsible for the content of these services.

Access to the data and products typically involves an initial registration process. For further information, please visit our Data Registration page, or register on the Earth Observation Portal (EOP).

New data providers wishing to distribute products via EUMETCast, or users wishing to receive new products on EUMETCast, can express their interest by completing a GEONETCast Feedback Form (PDF, 47 KB).
