Köppen-Geiger Climate Classification

The koeppengeiger dataset contains global data of historic and present climate classifications according to the Köppen-Geiger climate classification scheme.

Description

The data is stored in the koeppengeiger schema, in a table called koeppengeiger. The geom column contains the geometry, the scenario column contains the scenario, and the classification contains the climate classification code.

Examples

Obtain climate classification of a point location

Use the following query to obtain the climate classification under different scenarios:

SELECT 
     scenario, classification
FROM 
     koeppengeiger.koeppengeiger 
WHERE 
     ST_Intersects(
        koeppengeiger.geom, 
        ST_SetSRID(ST_Point(-71.1043443253471, 42.3150676015829), 4326)
     );

Which returns:

   scenario    | classification 
---------------+----------------
 obs_1951_1975 | Cfa
 obs_1976_2000 | Dfa
(2 rows)
