Welcome to ClimataTM, an innovative software application developed under a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Sectoral Application Research Program (SARP) grant by Houston Engineering, Inc. (HEI) and its partners (http://klamathdss.org/noaagrant.php). ClimataTM streamlines the process of finding and retrieving climate, water and streamflow forecast data from a number of national data providers. This is just one product developed by HEI that is consistent with President Obama’s Climate Data Initiative.
Using ClimataTM, climate, water and streamflow forecast
data can be found and retrieved from the Applied Climate Information Service
(ACIS), the National Water Information System (NWIS), the National Water and
Climate Center (NWCC), and Agrimet and Hydromet. ClimataTM
is a free demo application which demonstrates the power of
web services and open data standards
to combat growing resource concerns. This is one component of a vision to
improve the delivery of climate, water and streamflow forecast data to a
broad stakeholder community that relies on data daily for decision-making.
More information about this vision can be found on our website:
Our vision is the use of ClimataTM to retrieve climate, water and streamflow forecast data from multiple state and federal sources and integrate these data at a fine spatial scale to generate localized climate, drought and water supply indices to improve resource decisions. Data could be integrated on a real time basis into an interactive map application (http://gis.klamathdss.org/) or a customizable dashboard to better understand water supply availability and the implications of water allocations within a basin.
