Climate Watch

by Climate Watch | Overall rating: 0

Climate Watch multiplies the value of Open Environmental Data. It integrates and enriches them, makes them usable for everyone and creates an ecosystem to connect stakeholders and develop services.

We collect existing datasets, link them, add domain-specific knowledge by means of a user-friendly SaaS platform that facilitates discovery, navigation, analysis and correlation of environmental data. We complement that with streaming data via crowdsourcing in the same format, store them in our database and use them them to power our own application for data-driven research, as well as make them available for utilization by 3rd parties.

More data, easier access, better and more stories in less time and without the pain, that's what we're out to achieve. We limit the time and resources needed to investigate environmental issues, but more importantly, we make a difference by helping get the environmental word out.
