FAOCLIM is a CD-ROM from the Geoinformation, monitoring and assessment
group 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
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.
