Scientist repairs Climate Reference Network instruments
NCDC provides access to several online tools for use with climate research, analysis, and error-reporting. Detailed information about each of these tools can be found below.
Datzilla is a Web-based system for NOAA employees to report and track errors against NOAA datasets and data products. Non-NOAA employees can report errors to email@example.com
Weather and Climate Toolkit
The Weather and Climate Toolkit application provides simple visualization and data export of the weather and climate data archived at NCDC. The Toolkit displays custom data overlays, Web Map Services (WMS), animations, and basic filters.
GIS-Based Map Interface (Climate Data Online)
The GIS-Based Map Interface provides specialized dynamic mapping capabilities for datasets and products archived at NCDC. These capabilities include advanced searching, data access to various PDF and text output, accumulation maps, and historical mapping of observed and summarized data.
NOMADS Ensemble Probability Tool
NOAA's Operational Model Archive and Distribution System (NOMADS) Ensemble Probability Tool allows users to query the Global Ensemble Forecast System (GEFS) without downloading the data. The tool allows the user to describe a set of conditions and determine the probability that those conditions will occur at a given location.
Calculators and Conversion Tables
These calculators and conversion tables help people understand and interpret weather and climate data, including converting temperature between Celsius and Fahrenheit, calculating windchill, or estimating wind speed.
