FetchClimate is a fast, free, intelligent climate information service that operates over the cloud to return exactly the information you need. FetchClimate can be accessed either through a simple web interface, or via a few lines of code inside any .NET program. FetchClimate is intended to make it easy for you to retrieve information for any geographical region, at any grid resolution: from global, through continental, to a few kilometres, and for any range of years (1900 – 2010), days within the year, and / or hours within the day. FetchClimate can also report the uncertainty associated with the values it returns and list data sources used to fulfil the request. When multiple sources could potentially provide information on the same environmental variable, FetchClimate automatically selects the most appropriate data source. Finally, the entire query you ran can be shared as a single URL, enabling others to retrieve the identical information.
