Swiss Eco-Climatic GIS data

CHpreds2.pdf  (24442 Ko)

This pdf shows the different eco-climatic GIS layers available for Switzerland. Information is provided about the methods used for the creation of the layers as well as their interdependances and correlations.

Example dataset for MigClim.genClust

This dataset is to be used with the MigClim.genClust function implemented in the MigClim R package

Bioclim variables for Southern South America

19 bioclimatic variables based on Nix 1985, derived from a dataset of monthly climatic variables (1950-2000, 1 km spatial resolution) created with Anusplin software (Hutchinson 2006). More details on the methods here.
