Mapping climate change in California (video)

UC Berkeley researchers have built a Web-based mapping tool to help scientists prepare for climate change in California.

At UC Berkeley's Geospatial Innovation Facility software developers are building a Web-based mapping tool to help scientists prepare for the changing climate conditions in California.

The team has culled data from various climate research organizations to project what different climates might look like over a 150-year period. SmartPlanet visited the lab to see a demo of how the tool works.
