Great lakes in Central Asia-Basic dataset-climate-2016

Meteorological data is a group of data reflecting the weather, which can be divided into climate data and weather data. This data set mainly includes the rainfall data and temperature data in the meteorological data (pre represents rainfall and T2 represents temperature in the data set). This data set is from the CRU (climate research unit) global grid data provided by the University of East Anglia in the UK ( Cru data set is obtained by interpolating the data of 365 observation stations in Central Asia, which has high accuracy in Central Asia. This data set uses CRU to obtain rainfall and temperature data of five Central Asian countries through ArcGIS batch cutting. Data format: GeoTIFF; spatial resolution: 0.5 °; time scale: Monthly Scale. The meteorological data is widely used and can be integrated with resources in different fields. It plays an important role in the development and construction of transportation, new energy, agriculture, mobile Internet software development and service, public management, smart city based on big data technology, smart transportation, smart food and other fields.
