Release of Climate Mapper Tool

A consortium of research instututions has released the first edition of the Climate Mapper tool.

"The Climate Mapper makes the results of climate change models accessible to a broad user community. With the Climate Mapper, users can assess climate change projections for the 2030s and 2050s against 3D visualizations of landscape. This should enhance vulnerability assessments as development planners consider adaptation strategies for projects."

Although it currently provides coverage only for the African continent, we are promised a global system in the future.

The Climate Mapper and SERVIR Viz can be downloaded at: http://www.iagt.org/servir/servir_viz/climatemapper.asp
