Here you will find our latests news, updates about our work and our view about all things related to Big Data, climate services and health. Enjoy it and don't miss a thing: follow us on Social Media!
With this section on our blog we want to go beyond temperature, precipitation and wind, to explore other meteorological and climate indicators that are relevant, specially for specific sectors like agriculture, energy, water management or insurance.
We're glad to announce that the upcoming 24th of March we'll be taking part in the event "Challenges and Solutions for Spain" organised by the Copernicus Climate Change Service, ECMWF, AEMET and BSC. Thie virtual event wants to highlight climate data solutions powered by Copernicus, with a special focus on energy, water management and extreme weather events.
Event "Challenges and Solutions for Spain"
When: 24th and 25th of March
Monitoring agricultural lands, their use and evolution over time; analysing the growth and sustainability of forests and urban areas to plan their management; or developing policies that lay out the agricultural strategies of whole regions. Land management takes care of multiple facets of our environment and is performed through a miriad of institutions: public administrations, regional and national governments and societal platforms.
In May 2018, Ed Hawkins launched a climate visualisation that made the rounds around the world. The Climate Stripes. A strikingly simple visualisation, to convey a powerful message: the rising temperatures due to climate change. No axis, no numbers. Just colours. The intention was, as Hawkins explains, “to start conversations around climate change”1, especially with people that never talk about climate. At Predictia, we usually find ourselves in a similar position.
