UK Met Office Data Point

Last updated by Keiran MILLARD

The UK Met Office provides a good example of a data download service for atmospheric and meteorological observations.  Data is delivered via authenticated webservices as either XML or JSON and is designed for direct integration in 3rd party services.  The data is well structured and harmonised, consistent with Inspire but not compliant with Inspire data specifications.  The link to the following guide is a useful guidance on how the service operates.
