CNR4All DROUGHT OBSERVATORY – OSSERVATORIO SICCITA’
Thanks to the choice to deliver standardized information, data and tools fully open and free, the Drought Observatory can be easily used by several users, from decision makers, to water authorities, farmers and other researchers. Information, in fact, is delivered in formats suitable for different competences.
Moreover, the Spatial Data Infrastructure is conceived to also respond to specific requests, as detailed analysis in focus areas or integration with new drought indices.
