Cal-Adapt contains a wealth of peer reviewed climate data for planners and researchers. The Cal-Adapt website offers a broad range of tools to visualize and download data, but some users would like to work with the data on their own for custom visualizations and analysis. Working with Cal-Adapt data in software like ArcGIS Pro or R can be tricky though. Just getting Cal-Adapt data into these platforms requires that you know how to specify the datasets you want and where to find them, navigate a download process, and deal with format and projection issues.
Fortunately, all of this just got a little bit easier.
The webinar will introduce two new tools that facilitate the process of working with Cal-Adapt data in ArcGIS Pro and the statistical programming environment R. The webinar will cover:
- Why you might want to work with Cal-Adapt data in GIS and R
- Options for importing Cal-Adapt data into ArcGIS and R, including the new CalAdapt.py Python library and toolbox for ArcGIS, and the caladaptR package for R
- Tips and tricks for managing data formats and projections
- How to integrate the functions of CalAdapt.py and caladaptR into your existing workflow
- How you can try out and give feedback on CalAdapt.py and caladaptR
