Then from the dialog box click 'IRI Data Access Tool' (you may have to scroll down a bit), and press the 'Load' button (see figure 2), the indicator next to 'IRI Data Access Tool' should now change to green, now close the dialog box.

Steps:

1) The user can select a data product, i.e. Malaria Warning products, Desert Locust Area products, and more.

2) Next, choose a date range (or check the "latest available" box), then hit "Map!". This will either load a single image, or begin to download and cache dynamic time series WMS images. If multiple images are available, they will animate.

3) The user can also select a location, and generate charts and graphs for each data product.

4) The graphs and charts may be altered by choosing a different spatial area average. For example, when the user clicks a point, depending on the radio button selection (11x11km), a box is used to spatially average data. These graphs are generated by interacting directly with the IRI website at Columbia University.


This Plug-in is the result of a collaborative effort between The International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI) at Columbia University, and The Institute for the Application of Geospatial Technology (IAGT) a Cayuga Community College.

Funding was provided by USAID to support the SERVIR project.
