University of East Anglia (UEA)’s CRU-TS is one of the most widely used historical climate database. To help facilitate the use of this database in the CSI community, we have converted the raw data into the Esri ASCII raster format.
The Global Potential Evapo-Transpiration (Global-PET) and Global Aridity Index (Global-Aridity) dataset provides high-resolution global raster climate data related to evapo-transpiration processes and rainfall deficit for potential vegetative growth.
The SRTM digital elevation data, produced by NASA originally, is a major breakthrough in digital mapping of the world, and provides a major advance in the accessibility of high quality elevation data for large portions of the tropics and other areas of the developing world.
The Global High-Resolution Soil-Water Balance dataset provides hydrological raster data describing actual evapo-transpiration and soil water deficit with resolution of 30 arc seconds.
