The AtmoSwing (Analog Technique Model for Statistical Weather forecastING) software allows for real-time precipitation forecasting based on a downscaling method, the analogue technique. This method is used for hydro-meteorological forecasting in the framework of real-time flood management or electricity production. It allows for:
Time series for the coming days for a given location can be quickly processed and displayed, along with the full probability distribution.
The forecasts are displayed in a user-friendly GIS environment that allows for precipitation spatialization visualization. The software is interactive and handles several levels of synthesis or details.
AtmoSwing is built in order to ease the integration of outputs from various global numerical weather prediction models. It focuses on precipitation forecasting, but can handle any other weather variable.
Exports are either standard NetCDF files targeted for AtmoSwing Viewer, or XML files for integration in another tool, such as a web platform.
