To select the optimal site for the location of the future Cherenkov Telescope Array project (CTA) for observation of very high energy gamma rays many different data sourced are being analyzed and exploited. In order to obtain the reliable estimate of long-term evolution of the cloud cover above the candidate sites, we have used also the data from geostationary satellites. We will present the methodology of data analysis for Meteosat and GOES satellites and the observed differences for these two data sets.
