OGC Web Service Protocols

Distributing CCSM climate change projections through the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) web service protocols allows more flexibility for the data users in retrieval and visualization of the data.


System for Integrated Modeling of Metropolitan Extreme Heat Risk (SIMMER) aims to advance methods for assessing current and future urban vulnerabilities from extreme heat through integration of physical and social science models.

GIS Climate Change Scenario Portal

GIS Climate Change Scenarios portal serves a large community of GIS users. Global and downscaled climate change projections from the Community Climate System Model (CCSM-3) can be downloaded in a common GIS format.

Knowledge innovation at the science-policy interface

Knowledge innovation at the science-policy interface is one of the main focus areas of the GIS-focused education, hands-on training, and capacity building.

New Climate Change Tool for GIS

The Climate Inspector (http://gisClimateChange.ucar.edu/) is an interactive web application which expands Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping and graphing capabilities to visualize possible temperature and precipitation changes throughout the 21st century.
