ClimateWizard is a web-based computer programme which allows users to examine a country’s past climate and assess what changes are predicted to occur in the future. It has been designed to be accessible to both technical and non-technical users, and helps audiences to visualise the effects of climate change. ClimateWizard presents users with the opportunity to view historic temperature and rainfall maps for anywhere in the world, as well as view predictions of temperature and rainfall based on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Forth Assessment Report. When analysing climate change predictions, there are three greenhouse gas emission scenarios (used by the IPCC) that can be selected, and there are sixteen General Circulation Models (GCM), as well as a variety of different ensembles, available to base ClimateWizard predictions on. Maps can be viewed online and downloaded.
