Is there any freely available database of sky pictures, which also already has an information about the cloud cover in metadata (by percentage, or by okta)? I am no meteorologist, but I want to train my program to estimate cloud cover from pictures of sky I will take. Do you think it makes any sense? Or do you think it would be better, more precise, to calculate cloud cover from image processing?

Edit: I am looking more for a database of pictures like this - allskycam.com but with the cloud cover already calculated

This question came from our site for those interested in the geology, meteorology, oceanography, and environmental sciences.

Data availability has been discussed here:

Are there open historic cloud cover data files available?

I don't know if it is both IR and VIS, but they may link to published analysis methods that include ML techniques.

  • thank you for your reply, maybe I should move this question into the opendata section... I am looking more for a database of pictures like this - allskycam.com but with the cloud cover already calculated – Katarina Dec 4 '15 at 13:15
