Description: These updated world maps of Köppen-Geiger climate classification were based on temperature and precipitation observations for the period 1951–2000 from the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia and the Global Precipitation Climatology Centre (GPCC) at the German Weather Service. The climate classification comprises a total of 31 climate classes described by a code of three letters noted in the attribute table as 'GRIDCODE.' The first letter describes the main classes, namely equatorial climates (A), arid climates (B), warm temperate climates (C), snow climates (D) and polar climates (E). The second letter accounts for precipitation and the third letter for temperature classes. The Map Service author also added 3 attribute fields to decode the letters for simpler use; in the attribute table, Main Climate, Precipitation, and Temperature correspond to these original coded letters. The legend also reflects these attributes rather than the coded letters.
