Data Location



Most of the data is available online. The only item from the required minimum that is not publicly available is historical data.

The data is available at https://www.shmu.sk/ only in web view. It is not available in bulk, it is not machine-readable and it is copyrighted, so it is not openly licensed. The topic of copyright protection of meteorological data was publicly discussed for a short while in the past, but the Hydrometeorological Institute fought for the right to continue producing and publishing the data as copyrighted material.

Data was submitted by Fair Play Alliance and Jano Suchal
