Welcome to the open source development and collaboration platform of the Meteorological Institute of Norway.
The Meteorological Institute of Norway (MET Norway) is the meteorological service for both the Military and the Civil Services in Norway, as well as the public. Our mission is to protect life, property and the environment, and to provide the meteorological services required by society.
MET Norway employs approximately 80 IT professionals whose job is to develop and operate solutions for the collection, processing and dissemination of weather information. As a principle, the department prefers and works with free software systems such as Ubuntu, PostgreSQL, Varnish, Tomcat, Apache, nginx, KVM, Cfengine, Chef, and Graphite.
We also develop our own services and applications in languages such as Perl, C/C++, Java, and other languages. The basis for our work are usually free software components such as Boost, Qt, Catalyst, Proj.4, and Solr, and the vast majority of our services and applications are released back to the public as open-source software under the Gnu Public License v2.
