Meteo reports (crowdsourcing)
Users can enter weather reports via a predefined mask and additional free text (as a message to MeteoSwiss) in the app, as well as upload photos (especially to illustrate impacts). The reporting data itself is collected anonymously. In line with the technical framework of the MeteoSwiss app, cloud services from AWS are used to process and temporarily store the data.
Meteo reports are displayed on MeteoSwiss' own distribution channels and also in other systems of MeteoSwiss, other federal offices and other national weather services, in particular for use in the forecast service and for users from the disaster control sector. The uploaded content may be used by MeteoSwiss for any purpose, in particular also for forwarding to other federal offices and weather services and for transfer to international meteorological databases (e.g. European Severe Weather Database ESWD). MeteoSwiss may make uploaded content available to third parties and specify conditions and restrictions for this.
Uploaded user reports are archived by MeteoSwiss on a long-term basis.
