LocClim was developed to provide an estimate of climatic conditions at locations for which no observations are available

Last modified January 01, 2003 16:34

LocClim was developed to provide an estimate of climatic conditions at locations for which no observations are available. To achieve this, the programme uses the 28800 stations of FAOCLIM 2.0, the global agroclimatic database maintained by the Agrometeorology Group of FAO.

LocClim was developed to provide an estimate of climatic conditions at locations for which no observations are available. To achieve this, the programme uses the 28800 stations of FAOCLIM 2.0, the global agroclimatic database maintained by the Agrometeorology Group of FAO. See details at http://www.fao.org/sd/2002/en1203a_en.htm.

Next to a "no questions asked" automatic mode, the "benchmark" mode gives the user full control over the interpolation procedure (Inverse Distance Weighting). Inputs can be taken from the keyboard (location specified either by co-ordinates or by a click on a map) or from user-provided ASCII files. Output can be in the form of ASCII files or user-defined georeferenced grids in WinDisp format (www.fao.org/ES/giews/english/windisp/windisp.htm).

Copy of the CD-Rom can be requested by sending a message with postal address at agromet@fao.org. An improved version 2.0 is under preparation.
