Last week the White House announced the launch of the Climate Data Initiative.
Stemming from the President’s Climate Action Plan, this ambitious new effort brings together open government data and design competitions with commitments from the private and philanthropic sectors to develop data-driven tools that communities across America need in order to plan for the impacts of climate change.
Climate.data.gov will provide resources to help companies, communities, and citizens understand and prepare for the impacts of coastal flooding and sea level rise. Over time, this community will expand to include more datasets, web services, and tools; it will also cover other themes such as the vulnerability of the food supply and the threats to human health from climate change.
