The CDS Toolbox
Project reference period: 2016 – on going
Customer: Copernicus Climate Change Service implemented by ECMWF on behalf of the European Commission.
The CDS Toolbox is a key component of the Copernicus Climate Data Store, enabling users to access CDS data and build their own web-based applications, such as the one on our site.
The Toolbox enables users to analyse, monitor and predict changes in climate drivers and calculate their impact on business sectors such as energy, water management, transport or tourism.
And they really did! The Toolbox is in production since 2018, and several C3S Sectorial Information Systems projects have leveraged the Toolbox to provide service on a global or European scale, such as the “Climate projections of Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) survival suitability for Europe” or the “Projections of sailing limits for different ice-class vessels” (also a project we have contributed to).
The Climate Data Store as well as the Toolbox are freely available at https://cds.climate.copernicus.eu. Feel free to dive into this wealth of information and explore its capabilities!
