The AAP promoted the use of the RAMADDA server, an open source data and content management system developed by UNIDATA that runs on inexpensive computing systems and provides access to heterogeneous, geo-spatial and multi-disciplinary data forms. These include raw and processed data, real-time climate conditions and predictions, regional and global climate models, and output from geographic information systems. Its searchable database can generate information on different regions and from different applications for decision-makers. Together with RAMADDA, the Integrated Data Viewer (IDV) can be used to create powerful graphics that assist with the understanding of climate processes and projections and can also be used as a communication tool for engaging stakeholders.
UCT CSAG - Climate Information Portal CSAG CIP: CIP is a web interface that integrates two important information sources into one easy to use interface. The first important source is a climate database that stores and manages queries to a large suite of observational climate data as well as projections of future climate. The second important source of information is an extensive collection of guidance documentation that facilitates the best use of the climate data, it's interpretation and, importantly, resultant actions. The philosophy guiding CIP is that data is not information and as such only has value when well interpreted and correctly used or applied to appropriate problems.
UNIDATA:The Unidata Program helps researchers and educators acquire and use earth-related data.
EUMETSAT: EUMETSAT provides an evolving range of meteorological and climate monitoring data and products that reflect the needs of the user community. Operational meteorological and climate monitoring services remain priorities, with development of new environmental services covering the oceans, atmosphere, land and biosphere, as well as natural disasters — where they interact with, or are driven by, meteorology and climate.
NASA GIOVANNI: Giovanni is a Web-based application developed by the Goddard Earth Sciences Data and Information Services Center (GES DISC) that provides a simple and intuitive way to visualize, analyze, and access vast amounts of Earth science remote sensing data without having to download the data.
The World Bank Climate Change Knowledge Portal: The Climate Change Knowledge Portal (CCKP) Beta is a central hub of information, data and reports about climate change around the world. Here you can query, map, compare, chart and summarise key climate and climate-related information.
FAO RFE is a new independent method to estimate the rainfall amount, particularly, for certain regions where the coverage of the weather stations is scarce. FAO RFE is based on the Meteosat Second Generation IR channel combined with data coming from ECMWF global forecast model and EUMETSAT MPE.
FEWS NET Africa Data Portal - The FEWS NET Africa Data Portal provides access to spatial data, satellite imagery, and other data and graphic products in support of the FEWS NET project.
NCAR Climate Data Guide - The Climate Data Guide is the go-to source for scientifically sound information and advice on the strengths, limitations, and applications of climate data. Experts who construct, evaluate, and compare climate data sets contribute their perspectives and advice on climate data and analysis methods for a broad community of data users. Users may participate by posting comments, questions, and links.
