to the top Introduction

The Global Daily Climatology Network (GDCN) represents a multi-year effort of collecting, analyzing, and archiving daily data into a single data set. The GDCN fulfills a need for those who need to access daily data in a single consistent format. Prior to the GDCN, those with an interest in daily data were forced to search multiple data sets and often perform many of the time consuming pre-processing tasks, necessary for the creation of a high quality data set. In GDCN, the user has access to weather data from stations located across the world. This web site contains up to date information on the latest version of the GDCN, data set summary maps, quality control enhancements, error reports, supplementary files, and frequently asked questions.
