GeoCLIM: A User-friendly Interface to View Maps and Time Series of Geospatial Data

 

The GeoCLIM program is part of a set of agroclimatic analysis products developed by FEWS NET. GeoCLIM is designed for climatological analysis of rainfall, temperature, and evapotranspiration data and provides an array of accessible analysis tools for climate-smart agricultural development. These user-friendly tools can be used to:  

  • Blend station information with satellite data to create improved data sets  

  • Analyze seasonal trends and/or historical climate data  

  • Analyze drought for a selected region by calculating the standardized precipitation index (SPI)  

  • Create visual representations of climate data and create scripts (batch files) to quickly and efficiently analyze large quantities of climate data

  • View and/or edit shapefiles and raster files, and extract statistics from raster data sets to create time series
