Issued at 12:16pm 04-Jul-2005

Europe interested in MetService Weather.

Five European Union Heads of Mission are about to make a good will visit to the Head Office of MetService and its international division Metra, in Wellington, New Zealand.

On Tuesday 5 July a delegation from the EU including representatives of the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, France and the Netherlands have been invited to look at the innovative features of New Zealand Weather Forecasting.

"Metra's reputation for providing accurate and timely weather forecasts for sites in Europe is spreading," commented the General Manager of Metra International, Paul Linton. "Since the BBC started using Metra's weather graphics package WeatherscapeXT, there has been a lot of interest in this novel style of presenting weather in a useful and clearly understandable manner."

The European Representatives are also interested in MetService and Metra packages for weather forecasting in the Energy and Aviation sectors.
