The satellite-derived HelioClim-3 archives Web service provides time series of all the components of the radiation over a horizontal, fix-tilted and normal plane for the actual weather conditions as well as clear-sky conditions. The values are estimated from satellite imagery (Meteosat Second Generation satellite), and the geographical coverage is Europe, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Middle East. Spatial resolution is 3 km at Nadir (0°) and is increasing as soon as we get away from this point as depicted on the right hand side illustration. Data are available with a time step ranging from 1 min to 1 month. Temporal coverage of data is 2004-02-01 up to current day-2 for the version 5, and to current d-1 for version 4
