- Meteonorm Version 8
- Time series
Eight years after launching version 7 Meteotest publishes Meteonorm Version 8 today.
This upgrade includes mainly new and more current climate periods, better access to ongoing timeseries and updates of the software. The user interface of the desktop software hasn't been changed much. With the publishing of version 8 Meteotest stops the support of version 6 (2006).
Compared to version 7.3, Version 8 is based on more recent data from the following periods:
This recent time period is denoted in the new Version as “contemporary”. It is still possible to choose a “historic” data period (1981 – 1990 for radiation and 1961 – 1990 for temperature).
Further info you can find on the changelog.
Clients having bought a new or a upgrade version of software 7.3 during the last 31 days before the publishing date of version 8 are eligible for a free upgrade. Clients will be informed directly.
Meteotest is part of the Horizon 2020 project climate-fit.city. The final results will be shown at the two day conference "Making climate services a reality in Europe" November 13-14th 2019 in Brussels
Within the project climate-fit.city Meteonorm was updated with urban heat and climate change data for 100 European cities (in the next update 7.3.4). We will show that climate change and urban effects have a big influence especially for building simulation results.
