MetaCast is Data-centric
Metacast features a highly reliable SQL® database, which is continuously updated with radar, satellite, model forecast, pinpoint city/location forecasts, and up-to-the minute remote weather station data.
As a data source agnostic solution, Metacast works equally well for major network broadcasters, integrating data from a national weather center, as it does for a local TV station requiring a “one-stop delivery” data/system/graphics/storyboard solution.
Weather, PLUS a Whole Lot More
Metacast also provides interfaces for non-weather related data which facilitate real-time ingest of reports on earthquakes, fires, traffic events, pollen, pollution, volcanic activity and more.
A high-resolution digital elevation model, combined with 150m or 15m standard satellite imagery based terrain, is part of the Metacast installation. News maps and weather graphics content creation, for any location on Earth, is easily facilitated.
