Scientists, managers, and policy makers need the ability to assess the potential effects of climate change on specific ecological systems within specific geographic areas of interest at relevant spatial scales. Although large amounts of data exist regarding how climate has and is projected to change, these data have not been readily available.
Climate Wizard is an easy-to-use internet-based tool for analyzing and mapping climate change at specific areas of interest globally, regionally and locally. provides access to a wide range of climate data (both past observed and future modeled) and runs powerful analyses that address relevant ecological questions within specific geographic areas. The analysis products produced by this tool—maps, graphs, tables, and GIS layers—can be used to for environmental and ecological research, management, planning, and policy.
