FAOCLIM, a CD-ROM with world-wide agroclimatic data

Number 5 in the Environment and Natural Resources Service (SDRN) Working Papers series

SD-Dimensions is pleased to announce a new CD-ROM from the Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment group: FAOCLIM, which contains world-wide agroclimatic data.

The CD-ROM, now in version 2.0, covers monthly data for 28100 stations, for up to 14 observed and computed agroclimatic parameters. It includes both long-term averages (1961-90) and time series for rainfall and temperatures.





The data are accessed using two pieces of software: (1) FAOCLIM proper, to select data by geographic area, time period and parameter, and export them for processing by other software packages; (2) GeoContext, a user-friendly programme to visualise the information in map and graph form.
