Redesigned Climate.gov puts power of climate data in users’ hands



Today, NOAA unveiled a new and improved version of Climate.gov, a one-stop web resource for information about our changing climate from NOAA and agencies across the federal government.

NOAA's redesigned Climate.gov website offers user-friendly maps, video, imagery, news, and other features available to anyone seeking timely and trusted information, such as community planners, business and policy leaders, scientists, resource managers, broadcast meteorologists, journalists, and educators.

Since the website's launch in 2010, NOAA has engaged in dialogue with climate data users in both the public and private sectors about their needs. Based on feedback, Climate.gov now features a refined interface, enhanced its functionality, and added new content and tools, such as the 
Global Climate Dashboard and the Integrated Map Application, that make it easier for anyone to find, use, and visualize climate data.

Americans' health, security, and economic well-being are tied to climate and weather. Every day, communities and businesses grapple with environmental challenges due to unusual, extreme, or changing climate and weather conditions. Climate.gov offers actionable information people need to make well-informed decisions.

NOAA 
Climate.gov's mission is to provide timely data and information to help build a climate-smart nation. To view the website, visit www.climate.gov, or follow on TwitterFacebook, and YouTube.
