Abstract

State governors recognized the need for drought information, which resulted in the implementation of the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS). Other government efforts provide climate services in order to monitor, forecast, and mitigate the impacts of climate. In response to the SBIR request for a “Robust Software Data Integration Tool in Support of the NIDIS and Climate Services Delivery”, Riverside is proposing the development of a Climate Information Management (CIM) Toolkit. The CIM toolkit will perform data collection, processing, and data product generation functions in support of NIDIS and other climate web portals. The effort will be consistent with existing NIDIS technologies, utilize proven components and new technology, and be demonstrated via a prototype implementation for Colorado. Riverside’s expertise with developing similar systems, and our working relationships with data providers and water suppliers, ensures that technical objectives and user needs will be met by the solution.
