About MetGIS GmbH

Why international expedition teams trust in MetGIS

What does MetGIS actually mean?

"Met" stands for meteorology and "GIS" is the acronym for geographical information systems. The link between these two makes MetGIS weather forecasts so accurate. Weather data are combined with detailed terrain data. This improves our forecasts enormously, especially in difficult terrain.

How was MetGIS created?

It all began as a university-based research project. 10 years later experts from Europe, Russia, South America and Japan developed the MetGIS algorithms. Several verification studies displayed baffling accuracy. When more and more customers started knocking on the door, MetGIS was founded.

What does MetGIS offer today?

From our headquarters in the picturesque Viennese city centre we serve business clients all around the world in English, German, Spanish, French and Italian. By providing ultra-precise data, analyses and forecasts we help you make better business decisions and work more efficiently. More at metgis.com

Meteorologists with experience under extreme conditions

Our meteorologists are specialized in mountain weather. They have long-standing experience, also in alpinism under extreme conditions. Since they know about the challenges and dangers in alpine terrain, they can provide particularly valuable and practical assistance.


Developed specifically for mountain weather forecasts

Our forecasting system is based on extremely accurate terrain data and thus particularly well suited for mountain regions. Therefore clients from around the world trust in us: from the Buthan royal wedding and numerous Himalaya expeditions to international mountaineering portals. 

Ultra-precise forecasts, 
with a resolution of up to 30 m

General forecasts will not help you very much on your expedition. When planning the next stages or making critical decisions, the forecasts needed cannot be exact enough. This is why the ultra-precise MetGIS weather forecasts offer a resolution of up to 30 meters.
