The regression / interpolation techniques were followed from: http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/2010JAMC2536.1
Köppen-Geiger climate classification was used to apply regression on areas with contiguous climate pattern.
netCDF data from NEX-DCP30 Tasmin average of coldest month of the year were averaged at 30 years intervals prior to 2012 and to each predicted hardiness map year: 2041, 2070, 2099.
