Cost Recovered Data Service

For those needing meteorological data on a 24/7 operational basis,  Environment Canada’s Canadian Meteorological Centre (CMC) offers an internet delivery service called a Secured File Transfer Protocol (SFTP).

Examples of available data include:

  • Computer model data in a GRIdded Binary (GRIB) format for specific parameters and domains (down to hourly values), or point specific;
  • Unprocessed radar data for Canadian radars, as:
    • Digital Outputs – of radar echoes or precipitation (in ASCII format)
    • Full Doppler volume scans data (in IRIS format);
  • Meteorological maps;
  • Text form bulletins; and
  • Most of the data available on the free http server.

The internet SFTP push delivery is available on a monthly basis for a fee, and includes 24/7 support. CMC also offers a de-archiving service for past model data.

If you are interested in obtaining a data feed from CMC, please contact us.
