|Users can query several different datasets.|
Moreover, the website allows users to easily select and interact with data across the globe. In addition, a data download tool has recently released. It allows users to download the onscreen data as a square grid in many different commonly used formats (*.kml, tiff, jpeg, csv, xlsx, and shp).
In order to download data, look for the little gift/package button on the right-hand side toolbar--at the bottom.
The three goals of the project are: 1) Analysis and management of climate information, 2) spatio-temporal climate variability, and 3) Applied Climatology.
Lastly, the project uses open source web map development tools including GeoServer and OpenLayers.
