Climate Explorer is a research application built to support the U.S. Climate Resilience Toolkit. The tool offers interactive visualizations for exploring maps and data related to the toolkit’s Taking Action case studies. Map layers in the tool represent geographic information available through climate.data.gov. Each layer’s source and metadata can be accessed through its information icon. Climate Explorer graphs display 1981-2010 U.S. Climate Normals for temperature and precipitation, overlain with daily observations from the Global Historical Climatology Network-Daily (GHCN-D) database.
