CATALOG UPDATE | We now provide climate information for all African countries. This latest addition to our catalog means we now cover more than 100 countries and 4,300 cities.
Climate data for more than 100 countries (new countries in blue)
NEW PARTNERSHIP | We are a “Contributing Partner” to the Partnership for Resilience and & Preparedness led by the World Resource Institute and Future Earth. This partnership aims at building climate resilience with improved quality data access. We will support the partnership as a climate data provider, along with The Weather Company, NOAA or NASA.
AWARD | the climate data factory is now Member of the World Alliance by Solar Impulse Foundation. This alliance brings together the main actors involved in developing, financing or promoting products, services, processes and technologies that protect the environment in a profitable way.
AWARD | the climate data factory has been listed as an official data source for processed climate data by the commentary site RealClimate. We are honored to be referenced in this source among world-renowned organizations like NOAA and Berkeley Earth.
EVENT | As a service developer and data provider, the climate data factory attended the General Assembly 2018 of CLARA (H2020) in Venice, Italy. It was a great opportunity to discuss next development steps for our “Post Processed Decadal Prediction (PPDP)” service.
EVENT | From May 14th to 16th, we are attending a workshop on statistical bias correction methods in climate studies at different temporal scales (seasonal, decadal, climate projections). The workshop will bring together climate modelers, developers of bias correction methods and tools, and users of such methods, to cover the whole range of questions raised by biases in climate models, and to discuss the challenges posed by the ongoing developments around climate services. This is the opportunity for the climate data factory to review the state of the art in this domain and initiate new partnerships to better address end-users needs.

DOCUMENTATION | We released our first technical note called “Bias Adjusting Climate Model Projections”. This document is an overview intended for users who wish to apply climate model data in climate change impact studies, from local to global scale. You can open the document by clicking the cover below:
EVENT | In January 2018, we attended the kickoff meeting of S2S4E, a European H2020 project focused on sub-seasonal to seasonal forecast. S2S4E aims at offering an innovative service to improve renewable energy variability management. Along this 3-years long program, we will work on post-processing methodologies to bias-adjust sub-seasonal to seasonal forecast.
PRODUCT UPDATE | We now provide local climate information in more than 4,300 cities worldwide (> 100,000 inhabitants). We propose 5 climate variables: temperature, minimum temperature, maximum temperature, precipitation and solar radiation. In our next release, we’ll provide climate indicators across these cities. Start searching now and don’t hesitate to get back to us to share your insights and comments.
AWARD | On October 19th the climate data factory was awarded “Most innovative initiative” at the conference on “How to integrate climate services in the french development agenda” organized by the Agence Française de Développement (AFD). Show the summary report.
