Open Source Data Platform for Climate Resilience Now Available to Adaptation Planners. A new data visualization platform for climate resilience and adaptation practitioners is now available. The Partnership for Resilience and Preparedness (PREP), co-led by World Resources Institute and Future Earth, has developed a map-based platform, PREPdata, to provide easy access to the information that adaptation decision-makers need to assess vulnerability and build resilience to climate change.
On PREPdata, users can explore climate, physical and socioeconomic datasets and map them to visualize the vulnerability of a specific region; track indicators most relevant to their work on customizable dashboards, and share their stories with adaptation professionals around the world. PREPdata uses data from credible sources including NASA, NOAA, USGS and ESA allowing users to access and visualize spatial data reflecting past and future climate, as well as the physical and socioeconomic landscape for climate adaptation and resilience planning.
