Exploring climate model data

About us

Climate4impact is the result of a collaborative effort within the European FP-7 project IS-ENES2; an effort directed to Bridging Climate Research Data and the Needs of the Impact Community

The aim of Climate4impact is to enhance the use of research data and to support other climate portals. It has been developed within the European projects IS-ENES, IS-ENES2 and CLIPC. Climate4impact is connected to the Earth System Grid Federation, using certificate based authentication, ESGF search, openid, opendap and thredds catalogs. Climate4impact offers web interfaces for searching, visualizing, analyzing, processing and downloading datasets.

Climate4impact exposes open standards like WMS, WCS and WPS using open source tools. Processing services include climate indicator calculations, country based statistics and polygon extraction by GeoJSON. Provenance integration is achieved using the W3C PROV standard for fully traceable provenance. The PROV document is stored in NetCDF files and can be visualized. The provenance module traces data usage statistics in a database which is interesting for data providers.

The Climate4impact project members are continuously improving the portal by renewing existing- and exploring new features, in close cooperation with the impact user community.

Comments and suggestions for improvement are welcomed! Please use the contact form to send them to us.
