Met.3D is developed at the Regional Computing Center of Universität Hamburg and at the Computer Graphics & Visualization Group in the Department of Informatics of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), Germany. Since 2015, we receive ongoing funding from the German Research Foundation (DFG) within the Collaborative Research Centre SFB/TRR 165 Waves to Weather. Previously, the development was partly funded by the European Union under the ERC Advanced Grant 291372 SaferVis and the ERC Proof-of-Concept Grant "Vis4Weather".

Met.3D research and development is led by Marc Rautenhaus, Universität Hamburg (previously TUM).

The Met.3D core development team currently consists of:

Met.3D is used and extended in a number of research projects in meteorological data visualization, in particular by:
