The extraordinarily high quality of MetGIS forecasts is due to the fact that both the prediction technique and the graphical presentation of the forecasts have been developed within the framework of interdisciplinary international research projects over a time frame of several years. Very specific expert knowledge of research institutes, universities and meteorological services from a number of countries (see the adjacent world map) had an impact on MetGIS, covering a wide range of fields such as of meteorology, snow science, geographic information systems and software engineering.The most recent development work has been coordinated by the University of Vienna.
