Australian CliMate is now available as a web-app.
We have just released the online version of Australian CliMate to accompany the iOS version available in the Apple Store. It was developed under contract for the Managing Climate Variability Research and Development Program. It is designed for people whose business decisions are affected by climate variables such as rainfall, temperature, solar radiation and derived variables such as soil water and soil nitrate. Both versions are available for free. For more information go to www.australianclimate.net.au.
Scientific modelling software is traditionally developed by scientists and academics with little knownlege of modern software engineering practices. This leads to software with limited usabilty and longetivity.David McClymont (DHM Software)
...have done a great job in delivering CliMate on the web... CliMate and other sites like BoM and Weather Zone are setting the bar at a pretty high level in terms of delivering weather and climate data.Dr Jeff Clewett (AgroClim Australia)
My experience working in developing countries shows that decision support software must be simple, robust and provide key results up-front, which DHM have delivered in our projects. Dr Yahya Abawi (Ariana Consulting)
