The National Grasslands Research Group (NGRG) is pleased to announce the release of the first-ever National Grassland Temperature (NGT) map, produced using an open data-sharing platform called MapQuest.
The new map, developed by the NGRG and published in its Global Grassland Project Report, shows the average temperature of temperate, tropical, and mixed grassland grasslands across the globe.
This is a first for the NGT, and it provides a much more accurate picture of the actual grassland climate than is available from other sources.
The NGT map, with its 1.2-m resolution and color-coded map color, has been produced by combining the results from a large number of sources.
These include data from the Global Vegetation Atlas, the United Nations’ Global Forest Dataset, and the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) Climate Index.
The dataset, which includes the full set of temperature records for temperate (green) and tropical (red) grasslands in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, has more than 8,000 temperature records and is now accessible through the National Grassfields Data Project (NGDF).
These data are then used to create the NGT map.
The NGT is an effort to help people better understand the climate of their grasslands and the changes that they are experiencing in response to climate change.
“The goal of the NGTF is to provide an accurate, easily understandable, and robust global temperature map,” said Jeff Kucharski, an NSF National Science Foundation (NSF) scientist and principal investigator for the NGVG’s Global Grasslands Project.
“For more than a decade, we have been working with climate models and other data to create and share a high-resolution, time-series map of grassland temperate climate in the world’s grasslands.
We hope that the NGNT map will provide a useful tool for the public and for scientists who want to better understand grassland conditions.”
The NGTF map was created using the MapQuest platform, which allows users to create a dataset, upload their data, and share it with other researchers.
“We have been looking for a way to make this tool available to the public for many years,” said Paul Sowden, the NGF’s program director for climate and atmospheric science.
“By using the open data source MapQuest, we can provide more than 1,200 grassland datasets and more than 5,000 different types of data.
This will enable researchers to quickly get an accurate and consistent picture of grasslands climate, including temperate temperatures and tropical temperatures, and help people understand the impacts of climate change.”
MapQuest is an open-source tool that allows users in the US, Canada and Mexico to create their own grassland data sets.

The map was made available to researchers using the NGSSTN tool, which uses the Global Grass and Tillage Data System (GFTDS) to collect temperature records of temperates and tropical forests across the world.
For the NGRG’s map, a variety of climate models have been used to produce the NGHT maps.
These models are based on the temperature records from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), the U.S. Forest Service, and various other sources and are then analyzed for their accuracy and resolution.
The data used in the NGC map are the same data that have been compiled for the National Climate Assessment (NCA), which provides the most recent climate projections available from the United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
This data is available to anyone with access to the United Kingdom’s National Geophysical Data Centre (NGDC), the United Arab Emirates’ National Meteorological Department (NMPD), and other national meteorological organizations around the world, as well as to researchers in other countries.
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) Climate Data Exchange Project provides temperature data for the United states.
The USGS Climate Data Center also contains temperature data from a variety togs other government agencies, as are other national data repositories.
“It’s important to understand the underlying causes of climate variability,” said David Hsu, a professor of earth and atmospheric sciences at Arizona State University and the NGGR project leader.
“When you look at the data, the main thing that you see is that the climate is changing.”
The National Climate and Environmental Assessment (NCEA) is a United Nations body that advises governments on the causes of global climate change and helps countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
The climate change that is causing global warming is not the same that was happening in the past.
The Earth has experienced multiple changes in
