Mapping Climate Change in South Africa
Climatracker shows how global warming is likely to affect temperature and rainfall in South Africa.
The map includes two animated choropleth layers; one showing past and future temperatures and the other showing past and future precipitation in South Africa. The map also includes a number of reports into the observable affect and the likely future affect of climate change on the country.
The data for the timeline choropleth layers come from a climate model generated by South Africa’s Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). The timeline shows the data predicted by the model from 1971 to 2099.
