The development of the Open Climability Suite is based on the project "Database for managing information on climate adaptation (Indonesia)", which was contracted by The International Climate Initiative of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) in Germany to the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH or GIZ and the Meteorological, Climatological and Geophysical Agency (BMKG) of Indonesia. The companies geoSYS from Germany and iRiskio from Indonesia have jointly accomplished the project.
The Open Climability Suite aims at supporting Indonesia in the adaptation to climate change by providing useful products in usable ways for Indonesian stakeholders. These products were developed based on dialogs with the sectors to identify needs and availability and data from Indonesian weather stations. This strengthens the national weather service BMKG in its mandate to provide the essential climate change data and information as described in the goals of the Indonesian mid-term development plan 2010-2014. The current version contains observed historical climate data. Future projections of climate information from climate models are planned to be included in the future.
The Open Climability Suite is an open-source project, and only contains open-source software components. The software can be freely used under the terms of the GPL license.
The following software has been used: Drupal, OpenLayers, D3, JQuery, MongoDB, R
